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.
Older people will have to give up on modest ambitions such as visiting family, going to a football match or having an occasional takeaway as the cost-of-living crisis kicks in.
In Westminster the summer period usually remains quiet as the Houses of Parliament rises for the summer recess, however this year proved to be an eventful few months, filled with lots of speculation about the Government’s potential plans for Parliament’s return.
Later Life Ambitions has expressed its strong opposition once again after the state pension ‘Triple Lock’ was voted against in the House of Commons yesterday.
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.
