Our work

The Centre for Ageing Better is an independent charitable foundation working to create a society in which everyone enjoys a good later life. We have used the results of a major study we undertook with people in later life, alongside existing research and the views of other organisations working in the field, to identify areas that are key to achieving our vision.

We want more people in future to say:


I feel prepared for later life




I feel in control


Lastly, we carry out other activities and projects which complement these topics. These all contribute to achieving our vision.

I am active and connected



I live in an age friendly community

We also want more people to live in an age friendly community – Greater Manchester is the first of our partners taking a local approach to ageing better.
