‘Giving older people a voice: the case for an Older People’s Commissioner for England’ edited by Paul Burstow was published by CentreForum in September 2013.
Following the examples set by Wales and Northern Ireland, this report calls for the creation of an Older People’s Commissioner for England. The commissioner would be free from party politics, able to act as a strong advocate for older people, fighting their corner in policymaking circles, challenging discrimination, championing their contribution to society and the economy, and spearheading the future proofing of English policy development across government to prepare for the challenges posed by an ageing society.
