Report: The State of Ageing in 2020

A new report from the Centre for Ageing Better provides a snapshot of how people are ageing in the UK through the analysis of nationally available data. It explores the state of our health, our finances and our communities when Covid-19 hit and the impact it has had so far.

It argues that if the current trajectory is allowed to continue, the gap between those who are able to enjoy later life and those who struggle through it will be even wider for future generations.
