From Age UK

As the year draws to an end, we’ve been reflecting on the last twelve months. 2020 has been a year like no other, and we know it has been incredibly challenging for many of you. We’ve both found it tough.

But thanks to you, we’ve made a difference for many older people – at a time when they needed us the most.

This year thousands of us joined forces and campaigned on issues like care home visits, access to food, shielding, renters’ rights, TV Licences and domestic abuse. Between us, we took action over 360,000 times! Each and every petition signature, personal story and MP email you sent helped us ensure older people were listened to and their needs considered throughout the crisis, and beyond.

We are so proud of what this campaigning community has achieved, and we want to say a massive thank you. We feel very lucky to be campaigning with you.

Now is the time to put your feet up and enjoy a well-earned break. We’re looking forward to having you back by our side in the new year, ready to make the UK a better place to grow older. Have a wonderful festive season, and a happy new year!
