We've gathered some examples and resources from age-friendly communities in response to COVID-19.

Population

Attitudes to ageing and older people in the UK are mostly negative, according to a review of the evidence, with older people seen as incompetent, hostile or a burden on society.

Featured publications

The Centre for Ageing Better and Care & Repair England's new report reveals that over two million over-55s are living in a home that endangers their health or wellbeing.

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.

The Centre for Ageing Better developed the Healthy Ageing Challenge Framework, which is intended to stimulate ideas and provide thinking points for the ISCF.

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.
