Party conference activity 2017

Age UK will be attending the Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat party conferences this autumn. 

We will also be organising a range of fringe events, with more details to come.

The Fraud Fringe

We'll be taking part in fringe events at both Labour and Conservative conferences, highlighting how fraud and scams can affect older people.

The event is being organised with Connect and other partners, and is a followup to last year's fringe that won Party Conference Fringe Event of the Year at the Public Affairs Awards.

Dates, times and locations are below:

Labour fringe 

Tuesday 26th September, 12.30-14.00, Tyne Room, Hall 7, Hilton Brighton Metropole Hotel (inside secure site)

Conservative fringe

Tuesday 3rd October, 17.45-19.00, Exchange 2-3, Manchester Central (inside secure site)


Conservative Conference

We're working with partners on two fringe events this year

The new Giant Evil? Tackling loneliness in modern Britain

We're working with Bright Blue to hold a fringe event discussing loneliness. We'll be looking at the state of loneliness in the UK, who is affected and why. 

The fringe is taking place on Sunday 1 October, 7:30pm – 9:00pm.

Women and pension freedoms

Our second fringe at the Conservative Conference is being held with the Conservative Women's Organisation.

We'll discuss women's experience of private pension savings, including new pension flexibilities and the impact they've had on spending.

The event will take place on Tuesday 3 October.


Labour conference

How can Labour win back older voters?

We're holding a fringe event with the New Statemen to discuss how the Labour Party can increase its support among older voters.
