To enhance the quality of later life for people in East Sussex by:

  • Promoting a positive image of later life, reducing poverty, isolation and loneliness, and promoting social integration.
  • Representing people in later life to empower them and give them a voice.
  • Challenging the discrimination they face and addressing the inequalities which this discrimination creates.

  • Working in partnership with other relevant organisations with complimentary aims and objectives.

Activities

Our activities fall into three parts, these are:

  • Influencing the local agenda so older peoples issues are heard by decision makers
