Why A Plan?
Within London’s recovery from the pandemic we believe the needs of older people need to be protected, but also to use this opportunity to improves their lives through new initiatives. This first phase recovery plan outlines the current problems facing older people and proposes solutions for implementation. It assumes that social distancing will be required for some time before any vaccine is successfully introduced and that older people will continue to have greater health risks. But this plan is not just about helping older Londoner’s wellbeing, it also recognises the economic contribution of older Londoners and paving the way for London to become an Age Friendly city.
