The Care Act in England has changed the way social care support and funding works. Some of the changes have taken effect from 1 April - read our factsheet:
What does the Care Act mean for me?
We're delighted to announce that Anne Reid, celebrated actress and Last Tango in Halifax star, is to present an Independent Age fundraising appeal for BBC Radio 4 . The appeal focuses on the “silent epidemic” of loneliness among older people and tells the story of one of our members, Ron, who lost his wife two years ago.
You can now listen to our charity appeal online.
Independent Age is going through a major expansion. We are currently recruiting for new digital and PR roles in our external relations team.
See our current vacancies.
