Eventbrite - Report Launch: Inquiry into Electrical Safety in an Ageing Society

On behalf of the ILC-UK and Electrical Safety First, we invite you to celebrate the launch of our report on the challenges our ageing population poses to electrical safety.

The report is a culmination of extensive research, a ‘call’ for information, an evidence session attended by experts in the fields of housing and dementia, and a high-level review group. This has all helped form this final report, which we will launch on the 27th January 2015.

With the support of Electrical Safety First, we hope the report will highlight the often maligned importance of maintaining high levels of electrical safety, and draw attention to the challenges our ageing population poses to electrical safety. The inquiry has identified two key areas – housing and dementia – which the report will focus on. An increase in the number of older people, both with and without dementia, means that the need to create a home environment which is as safe as possible has never been greater.

We will be inviting a range of guests, some of whom will have taken part in the enquiry but also a wider audience of journalists, politicians and experts in the fields of housing policy and dementia. We do hope you will be able to join us for this very special event.
