Ready for Ageing Alliance calls for Government to plan for ageing impact
According to a poll of more than 2,200 UK adults the Government is simply not ready to deal with demographic change and the impact of an ageing population.
Over three quarters (77 per cent) of people said the Government was not ready for the impact of an ageing population, and 76 per cent went on to say that there should be one individual in the Cabinet responsible for ensuring Government is preparing for our ageing society.
The poll, conducted by not-for-profit older people’s housing and care provider Anchor also found that 84 per cent of people think that more needs to be done to educate people about planning for and paying for care.
With the Conservative party conference due to start on Sunday the Ready for Ageing Alliance, of which Anchor is a founding member, has intensified its call for Government to plan for our ageing population.
