Centre for Ageing Better: Ageing, inequality and ethnicity – evidence cards
The Centre for Ageing Better have produced a set of downloadable ‘evidence cards’ that highlights the contributions of and shocking inequalities experienced by Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic groups approaching retirement age.
Older generations are becoming more diverse than ever. But also more unequal. There’s an increasing level of inequalities in terms of health, wealth and life circumstances.
The inequalities described in this set of ‘evidence cards’ are particularly significant as older generations also become more ethnically diverse: the number of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people aged 50-70 is growing at a faster rate than the number of White people.
