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.

You can find and download the toolkit here, where there is also additional information about how you find our who your local candidates are, and how you can raise older people’s issues with them.

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.
