Wise Age is the leading specialist 50+ age & employment charity in London. We are a charitable organisation that campaigns for the elimination of age discrimination in all aspects of life, particularly employment.
We promote age diversity in the workplace, provide support to older working age adults (50+) seeking work, carry out research, and provide best practice training for organisations wanting to develop employment support services for the 50+ or interested in improving the quality of their existing provision.
Wise Age also campaigns for the active involvement of older people in developing age-friendly cities and services, and promotes intergenerational communication and understanding.
