London mayoral election, 2016
Please remember to Vote on the 5th May!
In February 2016, Age UK London launched the Mayoral Manifesto ‘Making London a Great Place to Grow Older’. At the launch event the four candidates, Sian Berry, Zac Goldsmith, Sadiq Khan and Caroline Pidgeon told older Londoners what they would do for them if elected Mayor.
Areas for action in the Age UK London Manifesto include digital inclusion, making London’s housing age friendly and making transport in London accessible to all.
Specific calls made in the manifesto include asking candidates to commit themselves to:
- Retaining the Freedom Pass
- Ensure that a range of suitable accessible and genuinely affordable housing options are available for older people in all London boroughs
- Providing funding for digital inclusion programmes for older Londoners
- Support the case for adequate health and social care in London
