The page also has some useful videos. Plus this one – an interview with Lord Filkin.
The report from the House of Lords Committee on Public Service and Demographic Change warns that the Government and our society are woefully underprepared for ageing. The Committee says that longer lives can be a great benefit, but there has been a collective failure to address the implications and without urgent action this great boon could turn into a series of miserable crises.
The report covers a broad range of policy areas, providing a comprehensive analysis of the potential impact of an ageing population on public services.
You can find links to videos of Lord Filkin, the Committee Chairman, addressing some of the key themes that emerged in the report below.
