We want to help society respond to the opportunities our longer lives bring and the demographic age shift we are experiencing.
Our evidence is helping us to identify the changes that need to take place now, across society, so that everyone enjoys later life.
Life expectancy has increased significantly in recent decades and the number of people in later life has grown rapidly. There are currently almost 12 million people aged 65 and over in the UK, with 3.2 million aged 80 and over. It’s estimated that by 2036, one in four of the population will be over 65.
We are working to drive the changes that are needed to respond to this shifting age demographic. This will require radically different approaches across society including to housing, health, communities and workplaces.
