InvestAge is a new action and investment co-operative that will help ventures that improve the lives of the older people of today – and tomorrow.
InvestAge wants to see a world where people live with greater autonomy in later life. We believe that creating a better old age for all is in everybody’s best interest. A new approach is needed.
We are a movement for social change – a co-operative for those who want to pool resources,share the challenges of ageing and address the questions raised by COVID-19.
InvestAge will use the pooled resources of its investor members to provide supportive lending to organisations that focus on one of the biggest social issues of our time – how to ensure that older people live safe, healthier, more independent lives, for longer.
The money you put into InvestAge is an investment, not a donation. You may add to or withdraw it when you wish but while it is invested it can be used again and again to make a positive difference to older people and to society in general.
Our plan is ambitious and unique. InvestAge aims to raise significant sums to provide large scale accessible loan finance for later-life programmes that emphasise autonomy, security, and mutual support. No other organisation in the UK is doing this.
InvestAge will encourage the participation of its members in identifying projects for support, forming and working with special interest and mutual aid groups and campaigning for later-life actions.
InvestAge is independent, democratic and co-operative. We believe in shared investment, shared values, shared skills, shared outcomes and a sustainable future. We will work strategically with partner organisations that share our aims and values to ensure our objectives are met efficiently and effectively.
