Change that leads to better lives

UK Older Persons Day

Today we are pleased to announce the launch of a new resource on Independent Living and Older People (known as Rilop) commissioned by the Office for Disability Issues and coproduced with local authorities and older people.

This resource is designed to help strategic managers working in local authorities to implement practical strategies for increasing the voice, choice and control that older people have over any support they need to go about their everyday lives.

  • We have been commissioned to develop a toolkit for local authorities and the NHS on ending age discrimination in health and social care.
