We need you
Help us campaign to make the UK a better place to grow older.
It's vital the Government listen to the needs of older people. Together with our campaign community, we push for change.
A million older households are already living in fuel poverty and surging energy prices mean 150,000 more will join them this winter. The Government must take action to help older people stay warm and well through the coming months.
1.6 million older people struggle each day without the right help and support. We're in the midst of a care crisis, but the Government is too distracted to listen.
2.1 million older people are still living in poverty which means they have to make difficult choices every day about how to spend their limited money. We’re calling on the Government to do more to help pensioners claim the benefits they are entitled to.
The Government has announced it's consulting on plans to move the qualifying age for free prescriptions in England from 60 to the State Pension age, which is currently 66. We need your help to make sure the Government knows how this change will affect people.
