Inequalities in later life

A report by a charity examines the disparities in health, financial security, social connections and housing faced by older people and how the negative impacts of these accumulate for those who are worse off.

It highlights how poor education, work opportunities and a lack of social connection can have long-term consequences for physical and mental health. The main report is accompanied by an insight report which outlines the implications of the findings on policy and practice.
