We're the UK's specialist think tank on the impact of longevity on society

Our history

The International Longevity Centre UK was established in 1997 as one of the members of the International Longevity Centre Global Alliance, an international network on longevity.

Since our inception, we have published over 250 reports, organised over 300 events including the annual Future of Ageing conference.

We work with central government, local government, the private sector, and professional and academic associations to provoke conversations and pioneer solutions for a society where everyone can thrive, regardless of age.

We are a small team of ten, headed by Baroness Sally Greengross as Chief Executive.

The Global Picture

The ILC-UK is part of the International Longevity Centre Global Alliance.

There are 17 partners: in the USA, Japan, the UK, France, the Dominican Republic, India, South Africa, Argentina, The Netherlands, Israel, Singapore, Czech Republic, China, Brazil, Canada, Australia and Germany.

The mission of the ILC Global Alliance is to help societies to address longevity and population ageing in positive and productive ways, typically using a life course approach, highlighting older people’s productivity and contributions to family and society as a whole.
