Why Age UK is blogging

This is Age UK’s pilot blog and we’re really excited about it.

Primarily, it will be used to talk about political and policy issues that affect people in later life and some of Age UK’s experts in various key areas will be posting their thoughts over the next few months.

While we don’t believe that any time is more important than any other for older people, the Government’s Comprehensive Spending Review and the fallout from the cuts is liable to affect people in ways that no-one can imagine.

The Age UK blog is here to try and make sense of the key decisions and issues that affect people in later life.

And, as we’ve already mentioned, this is a pilot blog and we’re keen for you to get involved and let us know what you think. A blog is nothing without comment and feedback from its audience, so please make your views heard.

We look forward to hearing from you.
