How we work
We are living longer than ever before but millions of us risk missing out on a good later life.
At the Centre for Ageing Better we are focused on bringing about lasting changes in society that make a difference to people’s experience of later life, now and in the future. This means more people in fulfilling work, in good health, living in safe, accessible homes and connected communities. We must act now to secure a better future for everyone.
We have four priorities:
Working in partnership with a range of organisations, we bring about lasting changes in society, particularly for those approaching later life and at risk of missing out.
We are funded by an endowment from The National Lottery Community Fund. As part of the What Works Network of organisations, everything we do is rooted in evidence.

Transforming later lives – our strategy
Someone aged 65 today can expect to live to 85, nearly ten years longer than their parents’ generation. Our long-term vision for responding to this demographic change includes goals for improving health, housing, employment, and communities. Read the strategy
