Campaign with us

We campaign for the things that matter most to older people. That means saving free TV licences for the over 75s, or fixing our broken care system.

We make the Government listen up and hear the voice of a generation who can't always speak as loudly as everyone else.

But we can only continue to change things with your help.

What we're campaigning about

An election has been called

We want political parties to pledge to make life better for older people, especially those who need us most this election.

Read our manifesto

Saving free TV licences for over 75s

Free TV licences for the over 75s are under threat. The BBC and the Government are arguing over whose responsibility it is to fund this vital benefit, and older people are caught in the middle.

Care in Crisis

1.4 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.

No Age Limit: older people and domestic abuse

There's no age limit on domestic violence. But there is an age limit to the data collected on it - 74. We want the Government to make a number of changes to protect older people from abuse and make sure existing safeguarding services are appropriate for them.

Security for private renters

Older renters can be evicted from their homes at short notice, even when they've done nothing wrong. This leaves so many people insecure and anxious about the future. We want to the Government to make sure that's no longer possible.
