Age UK London contributes to a wide variety of consultations relating to age sector issues in London each year.

Age UK London Consultation Responses

Age UK London consults older people and local organisations in a wide variety of ways to develop our campaigns and our responses to official bodies. This includes surveys, our older people's Opinion Exchange, e-mails, social media and consultative meetings.

For example, in July 2014 we held a policy discussion event with high level speakers including London’s Deputy Mayor responsible for Equalities, attended by 71 older people from at least 27 local organisations. You can read more about this event and the issues older people raised here.

Here are some recent responses we have made to official consultations, drawing on what older people and local groups have told us:
