The Challenge of Old Age Social Exclusion: Loneliness, Isolation, Sexuality, Discrimination and Elder Abuse in the New Zealand Longitudinal Study of Ageing (NZLSA)

Thu 16th Mar 2017

The Family Centre Social Policy Research Unit, based in Wellington, jointly leads the New Zealand Longitudinal Study of Ageing. Their work is particularly focussed on both the social exclusion of older people and the policy and service interventions that enable resilience and social connections. This presentation will focus on data from NZLSA that highlights analysis of loneliness, social isolation, sexuality, discrimination and elder abuse as they relate to health and wellbeing.


Charles Waldegrave is Coordinator of the Family Centre Pākehā (European) Section and leader of the Family Centre Social Policy Research Unit. 

He co-leads the ‘New Zealand Poverty Measurement Project’ (NZPMP) which has provided the evidence base for considerable public policy debate and social and economic changes in New Zealand. He also co-leads the New Zealand Longitudinal Study of Ageing (NZLSA) research programme. He is one of the founders of ‘Just Therapy’, an internationally recognised approach to addressing cultural, gender and socioeconomic contexts in therapy. He is regularly contracted to lead workshops in a range of areas of applied social policy internationally on every continent
