Two years on from our strategy, Transforming later lives, we look back on our achievements before and during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2019-20 across our priority work areas.
Our mission at the Centre for Ageing Better is that everyone should enjoy later life. We work across four priority areas – employment, housing, health, and communities.
We also work across wider issues that underpin these priorities – including shifting public attitudes to ageing and addressing inequalities in how we age. We focus mainly on those approaching later life and those at risk of financial insecurity, poor health or social isolation in later life.
This is a concise report of our activities and impact during 2019-2020.
The last month of the reporting year was dominated by the COVID-19 pandemic, and this crisis has given an ever-sharper focus to our mission. We show here how we quickly adapted our work and will continue to try and create positive change in what is an uncertain future for people approaching later life.
