BOPF Challenging Ageism Workshops – Making Bristol an ‘Age Friendly City’

These workshops are run in partnership with Bristol Ageing Better (BAB) on Zoom.  They are facilitated by Ian Quaife, BOPF Development & Engagement Manager and Bianca Rossetti, Bristol Ageing Better Programme Officer.

About the Workshops

The two-hour Zoom workshop is aimed at voluntary sector organisations working with older people, businesses, students, older people themselves, and anyone with an interest in challenging the ageist narrative. We enable participants to explore ways to tackle age discrimination and ageist stereotypes through their own lived/professional experiences. We also look at how ageist beliefs and actions can negatively affect both older and younger people.

The workshop content includes: • Definitions of ageism • Exploring ageist stereotypes • A short quiz • A brief history of ageism • Ageism and the 2010 Equality Act, looking at direct and indirect ageism through a number of scenarios • A Top Ten Guide to Combatting Ageism.

The facilitators are Ian Quaife, BOPF Development Manager and Bianca Rosetti, Project Manager at Bristol Ageing Better (BAB).
