In the UK today, two million older adults face a harsh reality: choosing between a warm meal or heating their home. As the older population grows, so does the urgency to act.

It’s a reality that 1 in 5 over-65s currently live with and why, by 2027, our goal is to improve the lives of one million older people facing financial hardship. We are working to ensure that older people in poverty have the income, housing and community support they need, so they can live with dignity and free from unfair costs.

We’re doing this through our specialist Helpline, expert advice service, community grants fund and free publications, all of which help older people across the UK.

But we can’t do this alone – your partnership can drive this change, and it has the power to make a real impact. Join us in making a meaningful difference, ensuring that ageing in Britain is not a journey of survival, but one of dignity and joy.
