Protecting and Promoting Older People’s Rights

Protecting and promoting older people’s rights

The response to the pandemic has illustrated there is still a long way to go until rights and rights-based approaches are embedded across our public services.

Furthermore, issues during the past two years have highlighted that the rights of some older people – such as older people living in care homes – are greatly lacking compared to the rest of society.
