Today involved a trip to Stoke-on-Trent where I was invited to speak to the North Staffordshire Pensioners Convention. Public engagement is an important part of our work as a Centre and we are always particularly keen to engage with those whose voices are not heard as loudly as others. We have already visited Stoke on our roadshows so I was particularly keen to see what kind of responses the audience would have for me. Stoke is one of the areas of the UK that voted most heavily to leave the European Union in 2016 and, as is well known, older adults were the age group with the highest propensity to vote Leave.
