Who we are
The Centre for Ageing Better is a charity working to create a society where everyone enjoys later life.
We create change in policy and practice, informed by evidence, and work with partners across England to improve employment, housing, health and communities.
The UK’s population is undergoing a massive age shift. In less than 20 years, one in four people will be over 65.
The fact that many of us are living longer is a great achievement. But unless radical action is taken by government, business and others in society, millions of us risk missing out on enjoying those extra years.
At the Centre for Ageing Better we want everyone to enjoy later life. We create change in policy and practice informed by evidence and work with partners across England to improve employment, housing, health and communities.
We are a charitable foundation, funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, and part of the government’s What Works Network.
