Ahead of the Pre-Budget report, The International Longevity Centre-UK Chief Executive, Baroness Greengross, said:

“Recent political interest in social care has highlighted the recognition of the societal challenges faced by increasing longevity.

In a tight fiscal regime, the Government must work to prioritise social care funding and dementia research. If we fail to meet the challenges of longevity we will be letting down both today’s and tomorrow’s older population. Older people will represent a high proportion of voters in next year’s general election and as such politicians will ignore at their peril.”
