Age discrimination is rife. The effects are damaging both to individuals and to society at large. We meet discrimination in healthcare, social care, and in the provision of many goods and services. Age discrimination in employment is still widespread, despite the introduction of Employment Equality (Age) Regulations in 2006.
The inclusion of age as a protected characteristic in the new Equality Act is a huge step forward. Age UK is working to challenge attitudes and practice, pressing the public and private sectors to work towards making fair access for our ageing population to employment and services a reality.
