Recommendation ID

Involving older people in developing interventions:- In the UK, what are the most effective ways of involving older people in developing interventions to promote their independence and mental wellbeing?

Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)

Why this is important:- There is no evidence on this. Studies would help providers to improve participation in interventions and that, in turn, would help more older people to maintain their independence and mental wellbeing. Evidence on effectiveness would also allow providers to better judge the levels of services needed and ensure enough places are available locally for these activities.
