We will be producing a series of Surveys on issues as part of our ongoing Campaigns. The information is important and helps us understand in more details some of the statistics we find in our research.
We are setting up both Wise Owls Campaigns directly related to our work – like promoting age diversity and age equality audits and consequent actions, defending wages and pensions
As well as issues affecting us such as protecting us from banks and speculators - e-petitions - so please join our campaigns and/ or suggest new ones.
We will be trying to build e-petitions and e-campaigns so that we will forward your supporting emails and/ or comments to the relevant minister or decision maker.
We are becoming the progressive older working age arm of such campaigns and lobbies as 38 Degrees, Avaaz, plus play an active role in supporting and linking to campaigns around cuts to services, attacks on the NHS, privatisation of public services, redundancies aimed at older people, active ageism, attacks on the environment, on pensions, on standards of living and wages for ordinary people.
