Our agreed policy positions cover the key issues that affect the lives of older people.
We're passionate that everyone should have the opportunity to make the most of later life. Policy and Research is an important part of Age UK’s work because it has the power to transform older peoples’ lives for the better.
We seek to influence decision makers by conducting social and economic analysis, developing public policy proposals and shaping policy agendas in a wide range of areas.
This collection of statistics is the best source of publicly-available, general information on people in later life in the UK.
