In Episode 8 of the ELSA Podcast we discuss what the study tells
us about the benefits of volunteering with James Nazroo from the
University of Manchester, John Hannen from Ambition for Ageing and
Oldham-based volunteer Pauline Coltman.
The ELSA Podcast explores how information collected in the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing is used in research, practice and policy to help us to better understand what happens to us as we age and how we can live longer, happier, healthier lives.
The Podcast is produced by the team behind ELSA which collects information from people aged 50+ on people’s physical and mental health, wellbeing, finances and attitudes around ageing.
Early episodes explain the background to the study, how it works and how it can be used. Later interviews focus on how findings from the study are being used by Governments, charities and others to help older people thrive.
Podcast production is by former BBC journalist Chris Garrington ELSA's Project Manager Kate Coughlin is the Editor.
