The Joseph Rowntree Foundation has launched a website to stimulate conversations on what life is like for older people with high support needs.

The site incorporates a poem by a former Poem Laureate of the U.K., Sir Andrew Motion. Perhaps the most impressive feature are the lovely photographs by Jo Hanley and Chris Steele-Perkins.

The site was developed by Joseph Rowntree Foundation as a part of its “A Better Life” programme that encourages people to think creatively and positively about getting older.  The stories shared on the site come from a wide range of people including people living with disabilities; lesbian, gay, and bisexual persons, immigrants, and other marginalized groups.
