These are the least likely people to attend cultural events, believing that the arts are no longer as important or relevant to them as perhaps they once were. A high proportion are over 60 or under 25. Many live in sheltered or specially adapted accommodation and are excluded from lots of activities by age, health, access and resource-related barriers. If they do engage, it is likely with very local participatory activities that allow them the chance to socialise, such as craft circles, church seniors or youth groups, organised by their housing, faith or community groups.
