Who we are

The Age Action Alliance was originally established in 2011 following a decision by The Social Justice Cabinet Committee to facilitate collaborative working between organisations (and some individuals) who had a shared interest in later life issues. Over the next few years, the AAA grew into a vibrant hub with some 900+ members, and giving organisations direct access to older people in order to inform their work and help develop joined-up solutions.

And this is very much what we now plan to do with what is effectively AAA 2.0! AAA is now run by EngAgeNet (The English Ageing Network) and the National Development Team for Inclusion (NDTI). But its future success depends on collaboration. If you are an organisation with an interest in the later life arena, why not become a member? 

We believe there is a huge opportunity to make an important difference to the lives of older people by enabling organisations (private, public and third sector) to collaborate on key issues and (uniquely) tap into the lived experiences of older people and inform their work. 

Joining is free – and you can take part in the collaborative virtual groups established to inform our research projects and develop policies on key issues such as housing, employment, health and care. You’ll be able to network with other bodies and individuals and share your news and views on this website and in our newsletters.

If you are an individual and would like to contribute to our debates, receive our newsletters and be part of our focus groups, again we’d love to have you aboard.

To become a member, as an organisation or an individual, simply email Tony Watts at info@theageactionalliance.org
