Britain is one of world’s most age-segregated countries, study finds
Britain is one of the most age-segregated countries in the world with divisions between generations increasing over the last decade, according to a report. The report by United for All Ages, a social enterprise that works to bring together old and young, calls for urgent action to end what it calls the “age apartheid” dividing the country.
It says people often have little contact with other generations outside their own families. Divisions have grown, it says, partly as a result of housing market trends, with wealth concentrated among older generations who tend to live in towns and rural areas while younger people gravitate towards cities.
