On Tuesday 29th September, ILC-UK and a number of our Partners, colleagues, friends and supporters were honoured to be hosted by Samantha Cameron at 10 Downing Street, for a reception in celebration of Baroness Greengross’ 80th birthday.

Samantha Cameron spoke about the importance of ILC-UK’s work, and noted that the challenges posed by an ageing population will affect all of us. She highlighted some of the issues that Government and civil society must address now to ensure a sustainable future and a high quality of life for all in later age, and notably discussed the need to address dementia.

Baroness Greengross described the event as an early celebration of the UN’s International Older Peoples’ Day on the 1st October. She mentioned how serious illness in our 50’s and 60’s has fallen, more older people are choosing to work longer, and more people are saving.

She also outlined the challenges an ageing population poses, and joined Samantha Cameron in calling for a continued collaborative effort to address dementia. She took the opportunity to thank all those in attendance for the vital contribution and support they provide to ILC-UK, and invited everyone to look to the future at ILC-UK’s Future of Ageing conference on the 24th November.
