The International Longevity Centre – UK (ILC-UK), invites you to be an audience member at a high level Inquiry into the relationship between alcohol and employment in the over 50s population in the UK. The Inquiry will be led by the ILC-UK and supported by the Drink Wise Age Well partnership which brings together alcohol and ageing charities and academic institutions from across the UK.
The Inquiry will be held over three dates with each session focussing on a different theme. The first will focus on:
Alcohol and over 50s out of work and seeking employment
Monday 18th April; 10:30 – 12:30
Committee Room 3, House of Lords, Palace of Westminster, SW1A 0AA
Please note that due to House of Lords security regulations, you are required to register for each session you are interested in attending. You will not be permitted entry into the House of Lords if you have not registered.
For details of other session dates, please visit the ILC-UK event page.
Drink Wise, Age Well is a Big Lottery Funded programme, set up to address the often hidden problems surrounding alcohol-related harm in the over 50s. As well as providing targeted community interventions, the programme will also be building a robust evidence base to assess what the biggest challenges are surrounding older adults and alcohol-related harm in the UK today. Our research has found that there is an often complex relationship between employment, unemployment, retirement and alcohol amongst the over 50s in the UK which needs to be fully understood.
In light of this, we are holding an Inquiry to reach out and engage with a wide cross section of stakeholders and generate wider political and public awareness, understanding and traction on this issue. Each Inquiry session will hear from expert witnesses, and the evidence emerging will contribute to our next annual State of the Nation report on alcohol-related harm amongst the over 50s.
During each two hour session, each expert will be invited to give an overview of their experiences and views on the topic, and audience members will have an opportunity to speak or ask questions after all of our expert witnesses have delivered their evidence to the Inquiry.
We look forward to welcoming you to any or all of the Inquiry sessions into alcohol, employment and the over 50s. If you have any queries about the Inquiry please do not hesitate to contact ILC-UK on firstname.lastname@example.org.
