Later Life Ambitions aims to encourage today’s decision makers to confront the challenges of tomorrow.
Later Life Ambitions brings together the collective voices of over a quarter of a million pensioners through the National Federation of Occupational Pensioners, the Civil Service Pensioners’ Alliance, and the National Association of Retired Police Officers Association.
Our members have ambitious aspirations for the next generation of pensioners.
From fair pensions to safe and sustainable care services, and from accessible housing to regular bus services to promote independence, we require bold and forward-looking action from our political leaders.
With your support, we want to change the terms of the debate – to focus on the ambitions of pensioners rather than the perceived ‘costs’ to the rest of society. So we urge you to join us in calling for an aspirational and ambitious future for those in later life.
Later Life Ambitions is about communicating the real voices of pensioners, and future pensioners to politicians and policy makers. To do, this we need your involvement. We are calling upon older people, and their friends and family, to share their stories, and experiences, to ensure that we are able to fully represent your views.
The Government has published a Green Paper on Defined Benefit Pension Schemes, entitled Security and Sustainability in Defined Benefit Pension Schemes.
The Resolution Foundation’s Intergenerational Commission has published a new report on incomes and inequality between and within generations which claims that average pensioner incomes have overtaken typical working-age incomes for the first time, and pensioners are now disproportionately unlikely to be in poverty.
Housing White Paper will help older people to downsize and increase specialist housing stock
Later Life Ambitions has welcomed the Government’s focus on older people in the Housing White Paper.
We asked our Later Life Ambitions members about the concerns they have with their current and future housing situation.
