Responding to older people's needs
We're working with local partners to support older people affected by the Nepal earthquake, which has killed over 7,000 people.
We're carrying out rapid assessments and distributing cash transfers.
By the end of the week, we will have started distributing cash to 10,000 older people and their families. This will help them buy items they need most whether it’s food, shelter or medicines.

Working with older people: Practical guidelines
Do you work with older people in the developing world? Need practical information on how to tailor programmes to older people's needs?
We have new practical guidelines for programme managers and people working with older people, drawing on experience in the HelpAge network.
Please use the guidelines for your own work, training or as a basis for producing more detailed, locally relevant materials.
