County Solicitors supporting Grey Pride

Content: 

Despite the fact that forecasts predict a 50% rise in the number of over 65s and a doubling in over 85s between 2010 and 2030, for this sizeable and increasing section of the UK voting public, there is no single minister dedicated to representing the views of older people.

Consequently, there is currently a well backed campaign urging the Government to provide Cabinet level representation to manage the existing and future needs of the older people. This 'Grey Pride' campaign, which hopes to deliver a Minister for Older People, was launched in April 2011 by care provider, Anchor, and has to date gained cross-party support and submitted to 137,000 strong petition to 10 Downing Street.

At County Solicitors, we are proud to lend our support to this common-sense and worthy campaign.

Rashpal Kaur, Head of Private Client matters at County Solicitors, commented “The elderly in our society have always deserved special attention, our achievements are founded on theirs. So it is only right that, in later life, with an aging population, the rest of society assists.”

“We whole heartily support this worthy cause. The increasing aged population demonstrates the  need for a Minister for Older people even more compelling. To be heard amongst the many demands of todays’ society, our elderly vulnerable clients need a pioneer, a champion to focus on the issues that affect them; putting in place the infrastructure to help prevent isolation, improving social mobility, and to raise awareness and concern about their welfare.

As part of our ongoing commitment to the older members of our community, County Solicitors regularly provide free legal advice and assistance to carers and members of  Kent Independent Dementia Support and the Dementia Action Alliance. With various charities, we also offer a Free Wills to the over 55s and  also regularly support other locally based aged related organisations
