We have strategic partnerships that help us to bring about change for people in later life:
- We are partnering with organisations that have a broad base of knowledge and evidence on ageing
- We are collaborating with organisations that have the ability to apply evidence for change across several domains
- We are working in partnership with places that want to become more age-friendly, helping them find what makes the most difference in their local context
Our current partners

ILC-UK is focused on some of the biggest challenges facing government and society in the context of demographic change. We are working with ILC to bring together evidence on certain topics and to share and spread this learning to key decision-makers.

- Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation
The Gulbenkian Foundation’s Transitions in Later Life programme is focused on helping people in mid to later life feel better supported to manage changes as they age. Together, we co-commissioned the project’s evaluation to understand what approaches are promising in supporting transitions in later life.
