Knitted houses

Over the years, you've helped us influence decision-makers on critical issues that affect older people, such as our under-funded care system, retirement, cheques and unclaimed benefits.

What you changed

  • You campaigned for older workers to have the freedom to choose when to retire through our Just equal treatment campaign. This led to the Government abolishing the Default Retirement Age.
  • You helped us close a loophole in the application of human rights law, meaning more older people are covered by the Human Rights Act when receiving care and support.
  • You campaigned for new legislation to reform the care system in the Care Act.
  • Along with many others, you urged the Payments Council to keep cheques.
