WELCOME TO THE ILC-UK

Planning tomorrow today.

The International Longevity Centre – UK (ILC-UK) is a futures organisation focussed on some of the biggest challenges facing Government and society in the context of demographic change.

We ask difficult questions and present new solutions to the challenges and opportunities of ageing. We undertake research and policy analysis and create a forum for debate and action.

We also host an annual Future of Ageing Conference to assemble representatives from Government, business, academia and civil society to discuss how the UK can meet the challenges and the opportunities of a rapidly ageing society. For more information, please click here.

The International Longevity Centre - UK is a registered charity. If you would like to support our work producing research and policy analysis and hosting free-to-attend events, please click here to donate to the ILC-UK via our secure donation portal.
