We held a breakfast debate that explored how the economy and inequalities in our society affect our experience of ageing.

Economy and inequality in the UK

What’s a fair way of distributing wealth through generations?

There are stark contrasts in people’s experiences of later life in terms of health, financial security and social connections. Failure to address these inequalities risks a future where an even smaller group of people experience a good later life. We want to explore what the economy and inequalities in society mean for people in and approaching later life, now and in the future.

This breakfast event explored wealth, our economy and inequalities, and what might be needed to help us all enjoy a good later life.
