CRESH MRC success (falls, ageing and resilience)

A team of researchers from a range of disciplines, including Professor Jamie Pearce from CRESH, has been successful in an application to the Medical Research Council (MRC) for a Strategic Grant to undertake pilot work on the outdoor environment and older people’s resilience to falls. The study, titled Go Far (Going Outdoors: Falls, Ageing & Resilience), will be a year-long project linking into Lifelong Health and Wellbeing (LLHW): a major cross-council initiative supporting research into healthy ageing and wellbeing in later life. The study is led by the SURFACE Inclusive Design Research Centre at theUniversityofSalford. The CRESH contribution will be to consider socio-spatial patterns in falls among the elderly in the UK.
