Ethnic inequalities among over 50s revealed in new research
Centre for Ageing Better

New data shows Black people in their 50s and 60s have significantly lower weekly income than their White peers, are less likely to own their home outright and are more likely to live in deprived areas.
This report explores how organisations working with ethnic minority groups engage with older members from their community and how this might have changed over time and to explore how individuals from ethnic minority communities use places, organisations and services for social contact and interaction.
In collaboration with Ipsos MORI, this report takes a look at the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the lives of those aged 50-70 in England. It focuses particularly on four key areas: homes, community, health and work.
The inquiry was undertaken because the number of prisoners over the age of 60 has risen between 2002 and 2020 by more than 240%. A large proportion of older prisoners have distinct health and social care needs and calls for a national strategy to address this.
