We are investing £78 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.

In March 2015 successful projects were given the go ahead to start delivering their projects. We expect them to start delivering activities from Summer 2015. Areas will continue to receive a package of bespoke support and development from our contractors Hall Aitken. The programme will be evaluated by a partnership led by Ecorys including Bryson Purdon Social Research and Christina Victor from the Brunel Institute for Ageing Studies at Brunel University.
