New Government - LLA firms up its Campaign for Older People

Later Life Ambitions ( a joint campaign of the Alliance with its partners in NARPO and NFOP) is wasting no time in engaging with the new Government to ensure that the requirements of our members are met. A letter is being sent to all new MPs to ensure that they are aware of the issues we are concerned about as they commence the new Parliamentary term

Overall, our main campaign asks are for:

· A cross party, long-term solution to the crisis in social care, that secures adequate funding and staffing for the sector

· Maintenance of the state pension ‘triple-lock’

· Increase in the minimum employer contributions for auto-enrolment schemes

· Ensuring that the free TV licence concession for over-75 continues to be fully funded

· Stopping financial and digital exclusion, which includes committing to no further Post Office closures and renewal of its funding

· A national strategy encouraging specialised later life housing throughout the whole of the UK

· A cross-party approach to tackling material disadvantages between and within generations, while championing the societal contribution of older people
