Supporting Older People
Elders Voice grew out of an organisation called The Pensioners’ Link Movement, whose founding principle was to improve the lives of older people, and the organisation continues to work towards those principles today.
Caring and valuing older people are at the heart of the charity’s identity as embodied by its logo. The logo is a circle with a heart at its centre and the heart is made up of two interlocking bodies. The circle symbolises Elders Voice’s holistic approach to service provision and the heart is symbolic of the organisation’s caring ethos that puts older people at the centre of all its work.
“By the end of the current parliament, there will be a million more people in Britain over the age of 75, and that will include a large proportion living with dementia. So there is no question that we here at Elders Voice are needed. I feel there is no question that Elders Voice is both up for the job and doing it well. We care about the people who use our services and we will always be ready to fight on their behalf.” Christopher Dunham, Chair of Elders Voice
