Kirsty has over 23 years working with and for older people, from managing healthy living centres for older people to working with Age Concern England (now Age UK) on social care policy and service development models.
In 2014 Kirsty founded Ageing Without Children (AWOC), dedicated to campaigning for older people without children through choice, circumstance, infertility, bereavement, estrangement, distance. There are already 1 million people over 65 in the UK who have never been parents but they are almost entirely ignored in debates and discussions on ageing. Ageing without Children campaigns for recognition of the issues affecting people ageing without children and offers advice and support on how to plan for a later life through children through its online group and local groups. Kirsty is married and childless.
The webinar will help people consider how to plan for a positive later life without the support of children and/or other family
