Motion text

That this House, celebrating the International Day of the Older Person on Sunday 1 October, equally celebrates the contribution of Christian charity Faith in Later Life and its partners to change the societal narrative of ageism towards older people as called for by the United Nations and acknowledges the contribution of church champions and volunteers across the country, making a difference at a local level to ensure that all older people are enabled to flourish in the church and, more importantly, wider society, both now and in the future.
