We are calling on all our political representatives to #Act4Age and deliver a better future for us all as we age.

Our Priorities for Action

1: Staying well, feeling good
Although people are living longer, many older people are spending a significant part of their later life unwell or living with a disability or long term health condition that seriously affects their quality of life.

2: Tackling pensioner poverty
Poverty in later life means a miserable existence which can lead to ill-health and isolation. Older people have told us about their struggles to make ends meet.

3: Equal and engaged citizens
Older people contribute to the economy through work, caring and volunteering but face a number of barriers in being treated as valued and equal citizens in NI.

4: Ageing at the heart of government policy and action
One of the biggest challenges facing the Northern Ireland government is how it will prepare and plan for an increasingly ageing population, at a time of significant financial pressures and competing demands for help and support.
