General Election 2017: Priority actions for better later lives

Priority Action has launched their  General Election 2017 manifesto: Priority actions for better later lives   By 2024, more than one in four of us will be over 60. Our longer lives are one of society’s greatest achievements. But while many already enjoy a good later life, others risk ill health, poverty and loneliness. At the same time, many in mid-life are struggling to get by and aren’t in a position to think about or plan for later life.   The next government has an opportunity to address the challenges and seize the opportunities of an ageing population, to ensure everyone enjoys a good later life. However, doing so will require a whole-of-government approach to create more age-friendly homes, workplaces and communities and opportunities for people to stay healthy, remain independent and contribute throughout their life.   With a concerted effort from government, Priority Action believe they can make the UK the best country to grow old in. Priority Action want to see the next government implement our three point plan for better later lives:

  1. Age-friendly places
  2. Age-friendly economy
  3. Healthy ageing
