By 2024, more than one in four of us will be over 60
Our longer lives are one of society’s greatest achievements. But while many already enjoy a good later life, others risk ill health, poverty and loneliness.
We believe that more people living longer represents a huge opportunity for society. But changes are needed so more people enjoy good health, are financially secure, are socially connected and have a purpose in later life.
We bring about change for people in later life today and for future generations. Practical solutions, research about what works best and people’s own insight are all sources that we draw on to help make this change.
- We share this information and support others to act on it.
- We also try out new approaches to improving later lives.
- We are funded by an endowment from the Big Lottery Fund.
- We are part of the network of What Works organisations that promote the better use of evidence.
