Parliamentary Champions

We have secured the support of around 70 Parliamentarians across all major political parties in both houses of Parliament.

Our Champions campaign on the issues that matter most to their constituents in later life – harnessing our evidence based research to deliver positive change and amplify the voices of people in later life in Parliament. 

What support can Independent Age provide to Champions? 

We share regular briefings to ensure our Champions are always kept up to date with our latest research, key campaign developments and relevant data on their constituency. 

How can Champions support our work? 

We encourage MPs and Peers from all political parties to use our evidence to support their contributions in relevant debates and, ask important questions to the government. We also hope parliamentarians are able to attend our events, share support for our campaigns on social media and signpost our advice guides at constituency clinics.
