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.
Thank you to all the Later Life Ambitions members who took part in our Autumn Statement Survey, please see the survey results here. The survey revealed that the main issue for pensioners over the next 5 to 10 years was health and social care, we have therefore based the December survey on the quality and provision of health and social care and the concerns that pensioners have.
We are disappointed that the Government has missed another opportunity to show it understands the growing social care crisis and has a plan for solving it.
The Later Life Ambitions Autumn Statement survey shows that Universal Benefits remain as important as ever for the older generation. This strengthens calls for the Chancellor to protect Universal Benefits in the Autumn Statement later today.
We asked our Later Life Ambitions members what their priorities for the Autumn Statement were.
