Carl Bennet

Carl’s session will present his take on the ‘Perfect Storm’.

As we enter a period where there are more people over the age of 65 than ever before and where we are experiencing, for the first time, a reducing population of under 16yr olds, Carl’s session, ‘It’s Not Just A Numbers Game’, will share an evidence based view on how and why we need to adjust and grow our knowledge & understanding of older people. Carl will share important and useful data, information and insights that you can use to shape intervention design at the local level. Sharing really great data and tools, Carl will help you articulate your older people offer to decision makers. This session is completely new, developed in response to the known challenges and priorities Carl and his organisation are responding to at the County, Regional and National level.
