Welcome to our new website. Forty years from the launch of the Foundation we still see many challenges ahead, not least the need to make a real impact on attitudes to ageing that are still too often negative. But this is our fortieth year and so also a time to celebrate positive things. Over the last few days I have attended a seminar about an inspirational School in Cleveland where people with Dementia volunteer to work with pupils; been part of the launch of the European Year on Active Ageing and Intergenerational Solidarity and spoken at the Generations Working Together national conference in Scotland. Even more importantly I have spoken with many people who embrace the importance of making ageing significant for us all. Over the coming months the Foundation is going to refocus how it works to make sure it can make the greatest possible difference to people’s lives as they age. I am looking forward to hearing from you all, particularly individual reflections of what you see as important, and which will help us to play a leading role in all of our futures.? The Foundation has contributed to work the United Nations is undertaking in preparation for the 20th anniversary of the UN Policy on the Family in 2014.To find out more and read the paper we contributed to go to:Link
