Our legislative work aims to provide information to MPs and peers about how proposed legislation affects later life and how their work could improve the lives of older people.

We produce briefings on key legislation and debates to outline our position as an organisation and key priorities for people in later life. We also submit evidence to Parliamentary inquiries on subjects affecting older people.

Some of our recent work is below and if you are looking for information on a particular issue please contact us to see if we can help.

Health, care and wellbeing

Public health is just as important for older people as for other age groups and prevention even more so. Preventing poor health and health crises in older people should be an essential objective for health and care services. Older people must be able to expect high quality care and support services that are co-ordinated and joined-up around their needs and circumstances.

Housing and Home

Active communities

Older people contribute a huge amount to society and the economy. Through work, volunteering, caring or grandparenting, older people take part in a range of activities all of which carry significant value. However, they face many barriers, including ageism, poor transport links and digital exclusion, which prevent them from playing a full and active role in the economy and society.

Become an Age Champion

Age UK and our supporters across the country have been asking MPs to become Age Champions. By signing up as an Age Champion, MPs agree to work to help make the UK and their community a great place to grow older.

For more information call Age UK on 0800 169 8787.
We're open Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
