‘Age Encounters’ is a network of researchers, academics and practitioners with an interest in age. Each ‘age encounter’ has presentations from speakers from different sectors, along with time to chat over coffee. Tea/coffee and registration start at 2.30, and presentations will start at 3pm. Our speakers will be Lorna Montgomery and Janet Carter Anand (School of Sociology, Social Policy and Social Work, Queen’s University Belfast), who will discuss their recent research on services for socially-isolated older men in Belfast; and Rejuvenate Project, North Belfast, who will highlight their services for men aged 55+ living across North Belfast.
