Hanover@50 Debate

Hanover aims to be influential, innovative and to promote positive attitudes towards older people.

To mark our 50th anniversary in 2013, Hanover sought to stimulate a thoughtful debate on the future of housing, care and wider support for our ageing population.

We invited nine prominent think tanks from across the political spectrum to consider these pressing issues against a backdrop of austerity measures and our ageing population.

In November 2013, Hanover published its response – Accommodating our extended middle age to these thinkpieces.
