Calling for recognition of ageing at the UN
This week, we are taking part in the Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals (OWG) in New York. The OWG is the group of UN member states leading the post-2015 process.
We are there to call for a new development framework which includes social protection mechanisms, such as pensions and universal healthcare for all people throughout their lives.

Watch our Age Demands Action leader Kenneth explain why we need a convention.
Working with older people: Practical guidelines
Do you work with older people in the developing world? Need practical information on how to tailor programmes to older people's needs?
We have new practical guidelines for programme managers and people working with older people, drawing on experience in the HelpAge network.
Please use the guidelines for your own work, training or as a basis for producing more detailed, locally relevant materials.
