Celebrating the contribution older people make to society Full of Life

Cymraeg |

Full of Life is a celebration of the opportunities, achievements, and aspirations of older people and their contribution to our society and economy.

Together, we need to begin to change our attitudes towards and behaviour around ‘older people’, along with our views of ageing and the roles that older people play, to create a more positive view of later life.


UK Older People’s Day 2009

To coincide with the UN International Day for Older People, UK Older People’s Day will take place on Thursday 1 October 2009. It is our chance to start to tackle outdated stereotypes around ageing by bringing people of all ages together.

Under the banner of ‘Full of Life’, events will be held in local communities across the UK around this date, and the Age, Snapped photography Exhibition.
