Our society and economy must wake up to the ageing of the population. Age UK is pressing to ensure goods, services and job opportunities are accessible to people of all ages and from all communities.

There is a solid legislative base to promote equality and human rights. We work with government and other organisations to ensure this law is implemented effectively and not diminished, and to raise awareness, promote positive legislation and ensure older people’s rights are respected.
