During the month of October Creation- Pop reached its first milestone as the first project result was completed. The report on Understanding the needs of persons in older age and how to support their social inclusion was finalised thanks to the contribution of all project partners.
The report consists of two separate elements. A literature review on the needs of older people and supports available in the partner countries. This element of the report focuses not only analysing literature on older people and social prescription, but also considers policies that underpin the provision of creativity as a social prescription in the partner countries.
The second element of the report is derived from a survey and sets of interviews that all partners have carried out in their national contexts with older people. The purpose of this survey was to give voice to older people to identify their needs but also their strenghts and interests, thus highlighting the importance of valuing their views and knowledge.
