Rose Gilroy (BA MA FHEA FCIH FRSA FAcSS) is Professor of Ageing, Planning and Policy in the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape, Newcastle University. Director of Future Homes Alliance CIC.
Professor Gilroys work explores how home, and neighbourhood support quality of life in later life. As an academic situated in Planning, she is interested in the transactional relationship between people and their place that embraces how people individually and collectively may influence their environments. Her work frequently uses an everyday life framework to explore strategies for survival or flourishing. Rose Gilroy has considerable research experience in qualitative and participatory methods: interviews, focus groups, photo elicitation and visioning. She is committed to change and much of my work is action oriented, and she has founded the Future Homes Alliance Community Interest Company.
A healthy public debate about important societal challenges requires a common and scientifically sound basis.
