Where is Penny?

Penny the Piggy Bank in Westminster

Penny the Piggy Bank is currently in:


Penny the Piggy Bank is on tour in England. She's highlighting how much the NHS could save if the government sorted out social care. Because right now, the piggy bank is very nearly empty and it's older people who are paying the price.

Not enough funding for social care in England means older people are being kept in hospital longer than necessary. These delayed discharges cost the NHS £500 every minute.
This is hogwash. Older people deserve better, and the government shouldn't waste public money like this. So we're asking them to address problems with the social care system. And you can help us spread the word.
Penny the Piggy Bank will be travelling all round the country, from London to Liverpool, taking in the landmarks of England along the way. You can follow her progress on Twitter and tweet any of your sightings with #WhereisPenny.

Together, we'll show politicians they can save money and give people the care they need.
