It may seem at times that when we enter retirement our voices, needs and wants disappear from the public landscape. We may feel sometimes that we have nothing to contribute to today’s society but we also may want to join in with others to try and make a difference.

Later Life is an organisation which brings together the collective voices of over a quarter of a million pensioners through the National Federation of Occupational Pensioners, the Civil Service Pensioners’ Alliance, and the National Association of Retired Police Officers Association. Their aim is to communicate the real voices of pensioners, and future pensioners to politicians and policy makers.

On their website they have published their Manifesto which is a call to action about a range of topics including social care, housing, local public transport and a Government Minister who can represent older people and their concerns.
