Offline and Overlooked

Published on 13 October 2023 04:09 PM

Everyone should have fair and equal access to services

But if you aren't online it's becoming impossible to do basic things like booking a medical appointment, applying for a blue badge or paying for parking.

6 million older people either don't have the internet or can’t use it successfully and safely. And many more just want to use post, phone or face to face sometimes, especially for sensitive issues. Why are they being overlooked? 
It’s discrimination. 

Sign the Age UK petition and demand that everyone has the right to a guaranteed, easy to use offline alternative.

If you or a loved one would like to sign offline you can print a template of the petition or request one by writing to FREEPOST Age UK Campaigns
