As part of the What Works Network, everything we do is grounded in evidence and analysis. Our strong base in research underpins action to transform later lives.
Our independent status gives us a powerful platform from which to do this. Our secure funding, thanks to an endowment from The National Lottery Community Fund, allows us to stick with the issues that we know matter most to people and to persist in achieving long-lasting changes.
The Centre for Ageing Better works to influence nationally and deliver locally – we do this through a range of partnerships with local places and national organisations.
Our partnerships and work in local areas
Long-lasting changes in our society can only be achieved by working in partnership with others. Our partnerships help us bring about change for people approaching later life.
We collaborate with organisations that share our vision, bring knowledge and experience of the issues we are working on, and can implement and deliver practical changes that make a difference to people’s lives.
We also work in partnership with places across England that are striving towards becoming more age-friendly. Through our partnerships in Greater Manchester and Leeds, we demonstrate the benefits of a joined-up approach to the opportunities of longer lives.
We work in localities to test innovative approaches and do more to promote widespread uptake of these across the country by growing the UK Network of Age-friendly Communities.
