Building a better world for older people

Across the world, older people continually demonstrate they are resilient and have much to offer. Yet they experience daily violations of their rights, are too often denied access to work and healthcare, and are prevented from participating fully in society. 

Ahead of the UK's forthcoming General Election, Age International presents five calls to action the next UK Government can take to create a fairer world for all older people. Learn more in our latest interactive feature.

Universal Health Coverage For All Ages

The world is ageing as people live longer than ever before. Despite this, healthcare systems are not meeting the basic needs of older people. Age International's new report makes the case for healthcare which is genuinely inclusive of older people, reaching them in their community.

Gaza and Israel

Ask your MP to call on the Prime Minister to press for an immediate ceasefire. More life-saving humanitarian support must reach those in need - including older people and people with disabilities.

Climate change

The climate crisis disproportionately impacts older people and their families. We must ensure older people are included in climate action, both now and in the future.

Helping Older People Live Better Lives

In today’s uncertain world, it’s often older people who suffer the most. Whether living in long-term poverty or affected by a sudden crisis, older people’s needs are all too often forgotten or ignored. 

It’s not right and it’s not inevitable. Together, we can help change the world for older people.
