Description:

The Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) launched (Thurs 30 June) Age of Opportunity: Transforming the lives of older people living in poverty, a report on poverty and isolation in later life from the CSJ Older Age Working Group. This report is the second and final part of the CSJ Older Age Review, drawing upon the publication of The Forgotten Age in November 2010, which broadened the debate on older age by outlining how loneliness, isolation and social breakdown have fuelled poverty in later life for millions of Britain’s pensioners for too long. Building on these findings, Age of Opportunity will offer policy recommendations aimed at addressing the plight of Britain's pensioners, while also celebrating the role of older people in society.
