Responding to today’s Fiscal Sustainability Report, Baroness Sally Greengross, Chief Executive of the International Longevity Centre - UK (ILC-UK) said:

“The future costs of our ageing society should rightly be worrying for policymakers. But they are not all inevitable.

If we don’t do much more to support longer working lives and aid innovation in health, care and financial services, our economy will certainly suffer. Future generations will not thank us for inaction today.

These figures highlight that the UK isn’t ready for ageing. Policymakers have some tough decisions to make but procrastinating is not helping anyone.

There is a role for all of us. That’s why, on the back of these figures, ILC-UK are delighted to announce the launch of a major two year project to explore how we can ensure the future sustainability of our ageing society. Learning lessons from across the world, SOS 2020 (Sustainable Older Society 2020) will set out a plan of costed solutions aimed at Governments, the private and the public sector.”


The International Longevity Centre – UK (ILC-UK) and Just Group have analysed the submissions and created a shortlist to take forward that helps deal with ageing issues such as cognitive decline, failing physical health, loneliness and digital exclusion.

We are looking for an experienced, flexible and proactive candidate to support the Senior Management Team in managing the financials of the organisation.

The ILC-UK has launched a Commission Inquiry on Health and Wellbeing Innovation, supported by Audley Retirement Villages and EY.
