ILC-UK develops ideas, undertake research and create a forum for debate. Based in Westminster, much of its work is directed at the highest levels of government and the civil service, both in London and Brussels. ILC-UK works, often with key partner organisations, to inform important decision-making processes. ILC-UK is aided in this work by the Chief Executive, Baroness Sally Greengross, former director-general of Age Concern and now a cross-bench peer. The policy remit is broad, and covers everything from pensions and financial planning, to health and social care, housing design, and age discrimination. ILC-UK works primarily with central government, but also actively build relationships with local government, the private sector and relevant professional and academic associations.
