NESTA, the U.K.’s Innovation Foundation, has identified aging as a priority topic. Its Accelerating Ideas program is funding eight highly promising innovations in aging to increase their reach and impact to many more people across the U.K. Those efforts include home-sharing, an intergenerational program connecting young professionals and older neighbors, experienced caregivers supporting current caregivers, running groups that add volunteer activities to their time together, and organizations that provide peer support for stroke patients, for older adults discharged from hospital or those awaiting hospital admission.

The NESTA website contains a wealth of tools and resources on innovation, measurement and scaling promising practices. It’s a must-bookmark to learn more about the latest thinking on those subjects from our neighbors overseas.
