Campaigns

Age UK London is a campaigning organisation actively striving to get the voices of older people heard.

It's vital that decision makers in London engage with London’s older residents to ensure that their knowledge and experience are utilised and that our parents and grandparents, the people who made this city great, are empowered to live full and active lives.
