UKRI Healthy Ageing Challenge: Our story so far
Population ageing is poised to become one of the most significant social transformations of the twenty-first century, with implications for nearly all sectors of society.

United Nations, 2022

The Healthy Ageing Challenge has supported the SHAW project with funding, research, and knowledge exchange opportunities so that we can continue to develop our research under the broader UKRI mandate to enable people to remain active, productive, independent, and socially connected across generations for as long as possible.

A global imperative

1 in 3 children born today will live to be 100
81 average life expectancy in the UK
