Despite progress in recent years, over a million older people still aren’t getting all the care that they need. Just under 2 million pensioners are still living in poverty.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Independent Age is campaigning to make the UK the best country in the world to grow older. We are determined to put older peoples’ voices at the heart of policy and protect those most at risk of poverty, isolation and ill health.
That's why we've published Planning for the Future: Independent Age's 2017 General Election Manifesto. We're setting out our vision for a society that works for older people, their family and their carers.
