The Ready for Ageing? report, published by the House of Lords Select Committee on Public Service and Demographic Change, draws extensively on evidence from H&P co-founder Pat Thane, of the Institute of Contemporary British History at King's College London. Reflecting her evidence about the positive contributions of older people to British society, the report calls for present-day attitudes viewing the elderly as a 'burden' should be challenged, and government policy radically reformed to respond to challenging demographic trends.
