Thank you to the NHS and our key workers
We’ve joined with @togethercoalition for a national moment of thanksgiving. We want to recognise and thank all those who have provided and delivered vital aid during the pandemic. So whether you’re a key worker, volunteer, refuse collector, delivery driver, or supermarket worker – thank you! Your efforts have helped those who needed it.

Home Truths – sharing your experiences
As part of our Home Truths series, we asked older people across the UK to share the struggles and the positives they’ve experienced during the past few months with social distancing measures in place. You can view the first part of this video series here.
We will continue to send you regular updates as these measures are changed and the country continues to navigate its way through the easing of social distancing measures. As always, we will continue to advocate and raise your voices on the issues that matter to you most. Follow link:-
