Centre for Research on Ageing and Gender

The Centre for Research on Ageing and Gender (CRAG) is an internationally-renowned research centre within the Department of Sociology at the University of Surrey, which builds on the research reputation of members of the Department.

Currently, members of CRAG are engaged in the ‘HomeSAFE Study’ exploring LGBT*Q social housing tenants experiences, concerns and preferences. Click HERE to view the HomeSAFE Study page

CRAG focuses specifically on the intersections between gender and ageing, in addition to other aspects of social division, identity and inequality, such sexuality, social class and ethnicity. CRAG research generally adopts a lifecourse perspective, emphasising the need to examine the connections between different aspects of people's lives, in terms of the effects of income and material circumstances on health, nutrition, sleep and well-being. CRAG aims for a fuller understanding of these connections in people’s lives and also recognises that ageing is a life-long process. Research within CRAG examines how gender differences in the earlier life course, in terms of paid work, family, housing and social relationships, influence the ability of people to live fulfilling and socially engaged lives.

CRAG research projects have focused on a range of issues including sleep, masculinities, sustainability, and more recently LGBT*Q lives and ageing.
