(2013) Giving older people a voice: the case for an Older People’s Commissioner for England

in Discussion & Reports
Paul Burstow (Ed.)

This report, edited by former care services minister Rt Hon Paul Burstow MP and published by the think tank CentreForum, calls for England to follow Northern Ireland and Wales and create an Older People’s Commissioner for England to represent and protect the interests of older people in England. It examines the case for such as role in England and provides the Welsh model as a guide to the commissioner's duties and responsibilities. The report recommends that the Care Bill currently moving through Parliament should be amended to enable the role to be constituted with appropriate statutory powers.
