Ageing and COVID-19
Contributions to the BSG’s Ageing Issues blog have attracted a lot of attention in recent weeks (https://ageingissues.wordpress.com/).

In addition to the Society’s well-read statement on COVID-19, blogs have been posted by Chris Phillipson (Covid-19 and the crisis in residential and nursing home care), Ann Leahy (Time to Confront the Portrait in the Attic? Reflections on Theories and Discourses of Ageing sparked by the COVID-19 crisis), and the Manchester Urban Ageing Research Group (Covid-19: Bringing the Social Back In). Other contributions are always welcome. Please send your blogs to: info@britgerontology.org.
