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 has created a toolkit to help you write to your local MP , ahead of the publication of the Social Care Green Paper, asking them to support LLA’s policy proposals and ensure that they are considered in the coming Green Paper.
You can find and download the toolkit here, where there is also additional information about how you find our who your local MP is, and how you can generate support for the recommendations that our members hope to see.
The intergenerational contract is an important feature of a well-functioning society. In practice, it means that the experience of each generation should be fair, whether it be access to care, career opportunities, benefits, pensions or a place to call home.
In a survey of over 1,500 older people carried out by Later Life Ambitions, 81% said they have noticed a significant decline in the quality of their council run services in recent years.
The influential Communities and Local Government Select Committee has published a report on their inquiry into housing and older people. This follows a consultation process earlier in the year which LLA submitted two sets of evidence to.
We asked our Later Life Ambitions members about the concerns they have with their current and future housing situation.
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.
