Featured publications

Mobility and transport are key in helping people to remain healthy, active and connected in later life. This report explores how the current transport system is complex and fragmented, leading to barriers in innovation and collaboration to support healthier later lives.

This report highlights the importance of providing support to employees in mid-life as a way of helping them stay in work for longer if they want to, plan for what they will need in retirement, and think ahead about their future needs.

This report presents the models of delivery, issues, barriers and innovative solutions of community-based strength and balance programmes.

Our work

Our goal is 1 million more people aged 50 to 69 in fulfilling work by 2022.

Our goal is that by 2030 there will be 1 million fewer homes defined as hazardous and half of all new homes will meet accessibility standards. 

Our goal is for people to have five more years free of preventable disability, and to reduce the gap between the richest and poorest people in disability-free life expectancy by 2035.

Our goal is to see an increase in the proportion of people aged 50 and over who report they feel they strongly belong to their neighbourhood.

Beyond our main areas of work, we work on broader issues that are important in changing society to ensure we have good later lives.

We want more people to live in age-friendly communities.
