Back to London and the problems for we seniors

After all the excitement / stress of watching the US elections, back to the reality that when it comes to a recovery plan for London both social and economic yest again older people rarely get a mention. A lot of us in PAIL and the wider age movement in London tried really hard to take the opportunity to submit our concerns, ideas and hopes for a future London post Covid only to see practically no mention of seniors and our key roles in employment, volunteering, the economy or society.

Still we keep on trying. This next week sees the London Recovery Board (LRB) meet to discuss the impact of its working plan on equality groups and the GLA Equality, Diversity and Inclusion advisory group ( of which Iam a member) reconvening to discuss what we want and how we can play a role. Our contribution will be to propose a Survival Plan for London and older people, to promote our outline for London Recovery Plan for Older People ( which both Manchester and waler have) and to submit ideas around both the LRB's Missions and reminding the GLA that we are still waiting for n action plan to make London an age friendly city - with a commitment delivered before the end of Sadiq's term in office
