East Midlands Later Life Forum

The East Midlands Later Life Forum is a strategic partnership bringing together people in later life with partners from the public, private, voluntary and community sectors across the East Midlands to prepare a response to the impact of the changing demographics in the region. Our strapline is "Working Together in Partnership to make a Difference".

EMLLF is affiliated to EngAGEnet - a new national organisation that will enable the direct voices of people in later life across England to be heard by those who create the policies, strategies and services that affect their lives.

The aims of the East Midlands Later Life Forum are to:

  • a) enhance the quality of life of people in later life within local communities;
  • b) improve the engagement and involvement of people in later life
  • c) increase economic wellbeing and opportunities for current and future people in later life living in the East Midlands.

The success of the Later Life Forum is based on co-operation and collaboration between partner organisations and people in later life, and co-production to deliver solutions together. The Forum has a unique place as a partnership within the East Midlands, having a singular focus on later life.


The East Midlands Later Life Forum has covered several themes at its meetings to share information on activity across the East Midlands:

  • .
  • Equalities and Diversity in the Police - reaching out to older people.
  • The National Energy Alliance - making a difference for older people by tackling the issue of fuel poverty.
  • Retirement in Rural Areas.
  • East Midlands Dementia Alliance - its remit and work.
  • Contact the Elderly - providing local responses to combat isolation and loneliness.
