Campaign to End Loneliness

The Campaign to End Loneliness inspires thousands of organisations and people to do more to tackle the health threat of loneliness in older age.

We are a network of national, regional and local organisations and people working together through community action, good practice, research and policy. We want to ensure that loneliness is acted upon as a public health priority at national and local levels.

Age of no retirement

The Age of No Retirement is a movement for intergenerational action and new opportunities for citizens, workers, businesses and communities of all ages – working together to challenge the narrative of division and difference and create a new age of unity and hope where our age, younger or older, does not matter.

Our goal is simple. To create a world where our age does not define us. Shattering age related barriers and ageist stereotypes. Creating an age inclusive future.

Hackney elders – seen and heard

Hello Hackney - Hackney elders talkingWe are oldies, talking about what we know, what we have seen, what we have done – real experiences and real stories. We record our conversation, then we put a shorter, edited version on the Internet – every week.

We make podcasts because we think older people in this area have unique insights about the world changing around us – and there is no point keeping it to ourselves.

We talk – other people listen and take notice. It’s fun, very effective, and we would like you to join us. You don’t need any technical skills to make your voice heard.

We don’t use expensive professional equipment or a sound studio. Our resources are minimal, but we do it all ourselves — oldies own the process — since 2010.
