Campaign with us

We campaign for the things that matter most to older people. That means saving free TV licences for the over 75s, or fixing our broken care system.

We make the Government listen up and hear the voice of a generation who can't always speak as loudly as everyone else.

But we can only continue to change things with your help.

If you've only got 2 minutes...

Right now the care system is broken. It needs immediate funding and long-term reform, so we're calling for the new Government to make care a priority.

What we're campaigning about

Care in Crisis

1.5 million older people struggle each day without the right help and support. We're in the midst of a care crisis, but the Government is too distracted to listen.

Saving free TV licences for over 75s

Free TV licences for the over 75s are under threat. The BBC and the Government are arguing over whose responsibility it is to fund this vital benefit, and older people are caught in the middle.

Domestic abuse

Domestic abuse has no age limit. We're fighting for better services and support.

Your money or your life

Tens of thousands of workers will not be able to go back to work because they still face a high risk from coronavirus. We're calling on the Government to introduce a furlough-style scheme for those who are shielding or high-risk and cannot safely return to work.
