At Independent Age, we work with people like you to make the UK the best place in the world to grow older. Our supporters write letters to politicians and attend events across the country to help influence politicians to make change for the better.
General Election 2019
During an election period, candidates will try and speak to as many people as possible. Whether they knock on your door or attend a local event, you can help us to highlight the issues that affect older people and their families.
Let's Get Personal
As part of our work on social care, we run a major campaign calling on the government to introduce free personal care for all older people. Free personal care would give people the help they need with simple activities like getting dressed and getting washed.
Credit Where It's Due
As a financial top-up to some of the pensioners most in need, Pension Credit helps to ensure that older people do not have to choose between eating or heating their home. We are calling on the Government to reform Pension Credit to make sure that everyone who is entitled to this money receives it.
