Ahead of last year’s General Election OPAAL produced a set of 5 key asks which members contributed to.  We have consulted with members again to develop an up to date set of five key asks of UK government and devolved parliaments/assemblies in the form of our Older People’s Advocacy Manifesto 2016.

We encourage members to read the full Manifesto document, as this includes materials you may wish to use in the promotion of advocacy for older people to decision makers.

We have tried to make this a short but visual document which can be shared with decision makers directly to make a call for the promotion and support of advocacy for older people.

We encourage members to share the Manifesto via their own networks, and if you use social media we also ask that you share this alongside the #advocacyworks hashtag to help us to keep the conversation going about advocacy for older people (our twitter handle is @OPAALUK).
