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 working with ARCO (the Associated Retirement Community Operators), the trade association for operators of housing-with-care developments for older people to improve our understanding of what specialist housing and support people might want in later life.

Later Life Ambitions have joined with the Charity Retail Association to support their initiative to match potential volunteers with charity shops, and to support older people to return to their volunteering roles.
COVID-19 has affected every aspect of everyone’s lives and it is important for Later Life Ambitions (LLA) to understand the specific implications for older people. We regularly survey those in later life through our three partner organisations and in April we asked for feedback on how coronavirus has affected your life. Thank you to all who took the time to respond. We are pleased to share the results of this survey with you here.
Ahead of the Budget on Wednesday 11 March, Later Life Ambitions asked its members what they want to see from the new Government’s first budget. We were keen to understand what spending priorities, taxes, and cuts are most important to older people. With more than 1000 responses, some clear trends and beliefs have become apparent.

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.
