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.
Later Life Ambitions supports Age UK’s ‘Penny the Piggy Bank’ campaign to draw attention to the crisis in adult social care. The campaign aims to highlight the savings that could be made by properly funding social care.
In a survey of nearly 900 older people carried out by Later Life Ambitions, over 72% have rated their overall experience of the NHS positively.
The Health and Social Care and the Housing, Communities and Local Government Committees have published their joint report into the long-term funding of adult social care.
Later Life Ambitions has developed policy positions on the key issues that matter to our members. From housing to the state of the NHS, we use these policy positions to respond to Government consultations, influence policy decisions and interact with MPs.
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.
