Help campaign to improve the take up of Pension Credit

Pension Credit is a vital lifeline to many but the sad reality is that 2 in 5 older people entitled to it, do not receive it. The Government admits that every year £3.5 billion of Pension Credit does not reach the older people it is supposed to help. Despite knowing this, the Government has failed to take adequate action.

Support the Campaign for Free Personal Care

This will give all older people the support they need with activities like washing, getting dressed, and getting in and out of bed, free at the point of use, like the NHS. 

Campaign with Age UK

Help to save free TV for older people 

The BBC has announced plans to means-test TV licences for the over 75s. For over a million of the oldest people in our country, television is their main form of company and now it’s under threat.
