Let's hope we have helped make London's recovery age friendly

The last week has been hectic for me and a lot of friends inWise Age, Positive Ageing in London and colleagues from other age organisations. After all that effort we managed to submit our responses to the various Mission statements which the London Recovery Board have put forward to try to ensure older Londoners concerns and proposals are not yet again unheard.

It was quite a chock reading the Board's draft proposals as there was so little awareness or mention of older people in theri recovery plans. Now that we have managed to get a lot of responses from members and seniors we hope this will change and we will get listened to.

Certainly quite a number of people involved in or near the process have responded to our proposals to ensure older people's issues are addressed and there is more awareness of how many proposals may impact negatively on older people or leave them out all together. For more details go on to www.pailondon.org.uk and look under Campaigns and London Recovery.

Also I wrote a long and structured response to their Mission relating to Work and employment which lays out exactly why older people need help during and recovering from this crisis and the ways that this can be delivered. Have a look under Campaigns section of Have Your Say on our www.wiseage.org.uk website
