Current government policy on public services, academics and organisations of older people are all highlighting the importance of new ways of working which support the active participation of older individuals in the governance of their affairs. "Working with older people" offers a guide to the promotion of participation through discussion groups. This jargon-free, hands-on resource covers the following areas: launching a discussion group; recruiting participants; preparing for meetings; running meetings; and influencing practice. Each can be used as a stand-alone guide. Together they form a complete set of guidelines to establish a project from scratch. The guide shows how working with older people can impact on practice, develop confidence and skills and be fun. The user-friendly format means it can be used by groups run with, or without, academic or professional facilitation. Although focused on the involvement of frail older people, it can also be used by other groups of potential and actual service users. "Working with older people" is a tool for practitioners, policy makers, service providers and researchers. Voluntary, self-help, campaigning and interest groups run by or for older people should also find it useful.

... practical, easy to follow and jargon free. It is a useful tool for policy makers and service providers as well as self-help groups and interest groups and shows how practice can be changed and services developed by these service users. Ann Lloyd, Deputy Director, Age Concern Northampton & County
This book looks set to be a constant and crucial companion to those involved in dementia research but could be more widely used by those undertaking consultation and participation projects. It offers an excellent overview of ethical and practical issues. British Journal of Social Work
