We need you
Help us campaign to make the UK a better place to grow older.
It's vital the Government listen to the needs of older people. Together with our campaign community, we push for change.
Older people who aren't or choose not to be online are being locked out of essential services. It's discrimination - plain and simple. Sign our petition to make access to public services fair, for everyone.
2.6 million people in England aged over 50 are unable to get care, which means millions left struggling to go to the toilet, eat, get dressed or wash because they can’t do these things without support. Help us end the long wait for care.
Given the rising cost of living, cuts to the State Pension or benefits seriously threaten older people's quality of life. The Government must keep its promise to protect the triple lock and stop benefit cuts.
The Government has announced its plans to provide further support to households during the cost of living crisis. But with energy prices so high, we know that for some older people, this won't be enough to support them through the winter.
Age UK is calling for the Government to establish a Commissioner for Older People and Ageing for England who would act as an independent champion to ensure that older people are considered in decisions made right across Government.
