We campaign in our own right and with our partners on the issues that matter to older people, their families and carers. By engaging with older people, policy makers, and opinion formers, we ensure that these issues are kept high on the agenda in order to change policy and practice for better care and support.

On 6 March 2012 more than 1,000 people attended a mass lobby to tell the government that the social care system in England is in crisis.
The lobby was organised by the Care and Support Alliance of which Counsel and Care is a member. The Care and Support Alliance is a coalition of over 50 organisations camaigning for the rights of older and disabled people.
