Campaigning is when we get together and put pressure on decision makers to make a specific change that will improve our lives. By campaigning together we can improve lives, bringing more happiness and security in later life. Age UK campaigns on a range of issues from calling for reform of the way care services are provided, to trying to improve the bus route in our local community. Once the issue is identified we put pressure on the key individuals who have the power to make the changes we want. Campaigning is something we can all get involved in, whether it’s writing to our MP, signing a petition, or simply telling our friends and family about the issue. By joining together we can improve later life for all of us.
Healthcare is the treatment and prevention of illness. Health care is delivered by professionals in medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy and allied health services.
