Our research approach

The Beth Johnson Foundation is full of strategic ideas about how to make our society age-friendly. For decades, we have been conducting cutting edge research into issues surrounding later life, developing practical, innovative initiatives from our results, and disseminating them across the UK and Europe. With our expertise and breadth of knowledge about age related issues, we advise all four national governments in the UK, and sit on multiple advisory boards, including:

One key area of our research has been focused on intergenerational practice. This project has grown into the Linking Generations in Northern Ireland, the European Map of Intergenerational Learning for practitioners across Europe, and European Certificate of Intergenerational Learning, an accredited, distance learning, training programme.

We have a variety of other research programmes under way, which you can find out about here.
