The International Longevity Centre-UK is the leading think tank on longevity and demographic change. It is an independent, non-partisan think-tank dedicated to addressing issues of longevity, ageing and population change. We develop ideas, undertake research and create a forum for debate.

Based in Westminster, much of our work is directed at the highest levels of government and the civil service, both in London and Brussels. We have a reputation as a respected think tank which works, often with key partner organisations, to inform important decision-making processes. We are aided in this work by our Chief Executive, Baroness Sally Greengross, former director-general of Age Concern and now a cross-bench peer.

Our policy remit is broad, and covers everything from pensions and financial planning, to health and social care, housing design, and age discrimination. We work primarily with central government, but also actively build relationships with local government, the private sector and relevant professional and academic associations.

The ILC-UK is a registered charity (no. 1080496) incorporated with limited liability in England and Wales (company no. 3798902).

The ILC-UK is part of the International Longevity Centre Global Alliance. There are 14 partners across the globe in the United States of America, Japan, France, the Dominican Republic, India, South Africa, Argentina, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Singapore, Israel, Brazil and China.

The alliance is a multinational research and educational consortium, united in a common purpose to understand and address the consequences of population ageing and advancing longevity. Our unique alliance undertakes joint studies and symposia as well as country-specific activities to engage and inform a wide variety of stakeholders from across the globe.

The overarching aim of the alliance is to articulate a call to action from an interdisciplinary, intergenerational and life course perspective - promote and highlight the opportunities and challenges population ageing presents to modern society.


Age UK Research Fellowship
Age UK is funding a three year research fellowship at the ILC-UK. This fellowship allows us to undertake important research on ageing and longevity. Through the research fellowship, ILC-UK will undertake a number of pieces of policy and research work in agreement with Age UK. The ILC-UK is most appreciative of this opportunity given by Age UK.

The ILC-UK Partnership Programme
The ILC-UK Partnership Programme is a unique opportunity for the corporate sector to benefit directly from the work-streams, research and policy networks of the only UK think-tank dedicated to addressing longevity, ageing and population change. ILC-UK Partners gain an insight and understanding into these societal changes and the challenges they create for business. The ILC-UK Partnership Programme enables companies to be ahead of Government policy, giving the opportunity to address and understand the issues and evidence that will shape public and policy debates of tomorrow. Partners are presented with the new and radical thinking required to respond positively to the changes that ageing and longevity are imposing on business and society. If you are interested in finding out more about our Partnership programme or becoming a Partner, please contact us.
