We know that a positive change in government policy will have the biggest impact for the largest number of older people.

Politicians need to pay a great deal of attention to the voices of older people. Research shows that older people do not consistently vote for the same party - they vote for the party that offers them the best deal.

Recent and on-going national campaigns include

  • Campaigning for an increase in the basic state pension and an end to means-related benefits
  • particular focus on women’s pensions
  • Our campaign to end age discrimination in all its forms

and much more...
