Introducing Future East

Wising up to older lives in East of England

Future East is a unique membership body, bringing together different perspectives to make life better for older people in the East of England.
We bring together different perspectives (statutory, voluntary and older people themselves) and provide a gateway for influencing policy and services at local, regional and national level.  
We use our collective influence to improve the homes, communities, neighbourhoods and lives of the growing number of older people in the east of England.
What we do:

  • Challenge assumptions about older people
  • Influence services and policies
  • Channel consultation
  • Investigate, research and record
  • Communicate across boundaries
  • Deliver the Silver Circles Project.  More details and contact information  here
