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.
A survey conducted by Later Life Ambitions and the Associated Retirement Community Operators (ARCO) shows that nearly 90% of people think the Government should widen housing options for older people and that more than half of older people are interested in moving but lack good local downsizing options.
ARCO and Later Life Ambitions will be launching an exciting new joint report, ‘Coming of age? Better housing options for older people’, on Tuesday 8th December from 3pm, accompanied by a stellar panel of speakers from the worlds of politics, civil society and organisations supporting older people.
Later Life Ambitions (LLA) welcomes the Chancellor’s assurances in the Spending Review today that the pensions triple lock will be protected for another year. Whilst difficult decisions have undoubtedly had to be made to protect the UK’s economy, LLA is calling on the Government to provide long-term certainty to pensioners that the triple lock will continue.

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. Please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org, call 020 7592 9592 or follow us on Twitter.
