Campaign with us

It's vital the Government listen to the needs of older people. Together with our campaign community, we push for change.

What we're campaigning about

Offline and Overlooked

Older people who aren't or choose not to be online are being locked out of essential services. It's discrimination - plain and simple. Sign our petition to make access to public services fair, for everyone.

We can't wait for care

2.6 million people in England aged over 50 are unable to get care, which means millions left struggling to go to the toilet, eat, get dressed or wash because they can’t do these things without support. Help us end the long wait for care.

Reforming the Windrush compensation scheme

Age UK is campaigning for the Government to urgently reform the Windrush Compensation Scheme, to address the injustice suffered by the thousands of people who have been wrongfully treated as illegal immigrants.

Commissioner for Older People and Ageing

Age UK is calling for the Government to establish a Commissioner for Older People and Ageing for England who would act as an independent champion to ensure that older people are considered in decisions made right across Government.

Age Champions

We’re calling on all MPs to become an Age Champion and speak up for the needs and concerns of older people in the next Parliament.

A blueprint for improving the lives of older people

In the run-up to the 2024 general election, we heard from thousands of older people about what the next Government can do to improve their lives. Our blueprint is a reflection of their hopes for the next Government and the policy solutions we believe will realise them.

It Doesn't Add Up

People of all ages on low and modest incomes need help to meet rising costs now and cannot wait any longer.

Switched Off

For over a million of the oldest people in our country, TV is their main form of company. That’s under threat.
