Age UK report: Ageing in coastal and rural communities 

Age UK and Public Health England have been working together to explore the factors underlying health inequalities for older men, older people from ethnic minorities and older LGBTQ+ people in coastal and rural communities.

In 2019, Public Health England published a review of Health Inequalities for Older Populations in Rural and Coastal Areas. This identified a number of important drivers of health inequalities for older people living in rural and coastal areas including some possible means to address these.

The research also identified gaps in evidence or indication of unmet need for specific groups:

  • Older men
  • Older LGBTQ+ people
  • Older people from ethnic minority groups
