An open letter has been sent to the Prime Minister by the Chief Executives of: Age UK, Anchor, the Centre for Policy on Ageing, Independent Age, the International Longevity Centre-UK and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation

The letter urges "Government to face up to the major changes and challenges from our rapidly ageing society".

The letter follows the report earlier this year of the House of Lords Public Service and Demographic Change Committee which argued that there has been a lack of vision and coherence in the ageing strategies of successive governments, to the extent that there is now "woeful unpreparedness" for our ageing society.
