Positive Ageing in London is the Voice of Older Londoners which brings together London-wide and local borough groups from both the voluntary and statutory sectors to consider age issues in London and agree common solutions.
Positive Ageing in London was founded in 2011 as the London regional forum on ageing, bringing together older people’s organisations, charities, service providers and statutory bodies.
We have already organised a series of successful events with great expert speakers and facilitated focus groups which have produced some excellent recommendations on the key issues which concern us as older Londoners.
From our events we provide policy calls for inclusion in the Mayor’s strategies for London.
We are also trying to be partners, representing older Londoners, with the GLA and Mayor of London’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion strategy, to try to bring forward the issues and Recommendations agreed at our conferences to enable older Londoners to actively participate in making London a truly Age Friendly City,
We are committed to making a real difference in the lives of older people by:
- Raising key issues affecting older people in London
- Feeding into London and national advisory forums and the Age Action Alliance
- Researching and developing older people’s policy and voice for London
- Reducing older Londoners social isolation, loneliness, and exclusion
- Engaging, advocating and promoting older people in London
- Disseminating policy and practise
Positive Ageing in London is chaired by Chris Walsh (Wise Age).
