Care campaigners with banner

We campaign on the things that matter to all of us as we get older. Sometimes the problems we face in later life just can't be tackled on our own.

Getting involved in a campaign is as easy as sending an email to your MP or local councillor, or as rewarding as getting a group together to do something about problems facing older people in your neighbourhood.

Help make a difference and improve later life for us all by joining one of our campaigns.

End Pensioner Poverty

End Pensioner Poverty

There are 1.6 million older people living in poverty. We want to see a world where no older person is trapped in the day-to-date grind of living in poverty.

Care in Crisis

Too many people in later life are being badly let down by poor quality care and support. So we're calling on the Government to urgently reform the care system.

Later life in rural England

Living in rural England can present unique challenges for older people, including higher living costs, housing that is hard to heat and maintain, poor transport links and more limited social networks.
