On the 24th November 2015, we held our first annual conference on 'The Future of Ageing'.
During this full day conference we painted a picture of the future of ageing and explored the challenges and opportunities ahead. Through our unique lifecourse focus we explored the potential impact of ageing not just on today’s older population, but also on tomorrows.

- Steven Baxter (Partner, Hymans Robertson);
- Lord Filkin (Chair of the Centre for Ageing Better and Chair of the House of Lords Committee on Public Service and Demographic Change);
- Lord Willetts (Executive Chair at Resolution Foundation, and former Minister of State [Department for Business, Innovation and Skills]);
