Ageing Better | Drive to increase volunteering and community activity by people over 50

The Centre for Ageing Better will lead a review in partnership with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport into how to enable more people aged 50 and over to contribute their time, skills and experience to their communities.

The review will focus particularly on how to increase voluntary and community activity among underrepresented groups, such as people on low incomes and those with long-term health conditions. Older people in these groups can face particular challenges to taking part, and the review will explore how best to tackle these barriers.

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.
