Experiences of food insecurity among older people in B&NES report

Download and read a report on Department of Psychology research into food insecurity among older Bath & North East Somerset (B&NES) residents.

This report, from Dr Leda Blackwood and Rebecca Hurwitz, was commissioned by Bath & North East Somerset (B&NES) Council.

It builds on a previous study, which found that older people in the B&NES region were not accessing food support in the numbers anticipated, and that there was scant knowledge about how well older adults are being served by current interventions designed to identify and support ‘hidden communities. Addressing this was identified as a priority in the B&NES Food Equity Action Plan 2022 – 2025.
