Centre for Ageing Better
Voluntary basis

At the Centre for Ageing Better we want everyone to enjoy later life. We create change in policy and practice informed by evidence and work with partners across England to improve employment, housing, health and communities. We are a charitable foundation, funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, and part of the government’s What Works Network.


Thank you for your interest in joining the Centre for Ageing Better as a Trustee. We are passionate about achieving our positive vision of a society in which everyone enjoys later life. We seek to bring about long-lasting changes in policy and practice informed by evidence so that more people approaching later life are in good health, fulfilling work, live in safe and accessible homes and connected communities. 

Established in 2015, with an endowment from the National Lottery Community Fund, the Centre for Ageing Better is now widely recognised as a leading authority on ageing issues. 

We have already had a significant influence on at least 20 major pieces of policy across housing, work, health, industrial strategy, and later life planning since our inception. We are strongly contributing to an increased understanding of demographic change, its implications, and how society needs to adapt. And our local work supporting the UK Network of Age Friendly Communities means that our reach covers 40 local areas with a combined population of 21 million.
