Welcome to the latest Age UK London Opinion Exchange Update!

The Age UK London Opinion Exchange is a new website from Age UK London. It is part of the organisation’s ‘Fit 4 Purpose’ project, which is funded by London Councils.

The Opinion Exchange features opinion pieces and discussion forums to trigger debate and ensure older people’s organisations are able to respond to the changing needs of their users.

The articles include:

Cashless Buses – An update on Transport for London’s decision to remove the facility to pay by cash on buses.

What Sort of Society do we Live In? – An opinion on the abuse of older people in care homes specifically.
