In response to calls for a Minister of Older People, 

Caroline Abrahams, Charity Director at Age UK said:

“There is a real need for a strong voice for older people in Government, but at the moment there is no one Minister, Unit or Strategy focused on this substantial and growing section of our population. For as long as this is the case the big issues for older people risk being overlooked by decision-makers, so it’s high time it changes.”
