MORI report

A new report by Ipsos MORI reveals the impact lockdown has had on those in their 50s and 60s.

Empty house

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact us all, Ageing Better remains as committed as ever to its mission of improving later lives.

Featured publications

In collaboration with Ipsos MORI, this report takes a look at the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the lives of those aged 50-70 in England.

This report offers lessons from the experiences of older jobseekers and outlines the support needed to get them back into employment.

Our report gives a snapshot of ageing today and in the future, focusing on the areas we know make a difference to people’s later lives.

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.
