We are investing £82 million in England to improve the lives of older people.
The Big lottery Fund has awarded a £50 million ten year endowment to The Centre for Ageing Better. The Centre’s primary aim will be to support a good quality of life in older age and promote the benefits of an ageing society by bridging the gap between research, evidence and practice. The Centre will form part of the What Works Centres network in England.
