Later Life Ambitions Campaign Update
As part of our continuing partnership with The Civil Service Pensioners’ Alliance [CSPA] and The National Federation of Occupational Pensioners’ [NFOP] we have agreed to continue our Later Life Ambitions Campaign [LLA] raising with Parliamentarians issues relevant to older people.
Between the three organisations we represent over 250,000 pensioners and will continue to try and influence party policies on matters of concern for older people.
We have taken the decision that we will concentrate on some main issues in the coming
Three key ‘proactive’ issues
Social care: LLA seeks a cross-party solution that guarantees funding for proper social care for older people and takes social care out of electoral o Pensions: LLA seeks a clear, accessible, single state pension system for o Housing: LLA seeks a renewed focus on housing for older people and a national strategy on encouraging specialist later life housing.
‘Reactive’ issues: Transport: Effective bus services are important for older people and this should be debated as part of the Buses Bill, we will also pursue the issue of using the bus pass a senior railcard.
Online fraud: This is an issue of increasing concern amongst older people and LLA will monitor the Home Office task force and respond where appropriate. As part of the campaign we have reinvigorated the LLA website at:
we also have a dedicated twitter feed at:
