About This Publication

Enhancing informal adult learning for older people in care settings is putting into practice the commitments of The Learning Revolution White Paper, which reported that ‘learning can improve the health and quality of life for older people in care, but too often it’s missing’.

Funded by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), the report draws on feedback from organisations and individuals and highlights 10 examples of existing practice, setting out the challenges in providing more learning opportunities for older people in care settings.
