Message from ILC-UK’s Executive Director Baroness Sally Greengross.

On behalf of the ILC-UK I am delighted to announce the launch of the new ILC global Website.

This website will certainly give the ILCs the visibility and recognition they derive internationally not only to publicise their important work and achievements but as importantly provide dialogue between the ILCs and all other significant international bodies such as the UN,WHO,IFA,HAI and ADI etc.

This new website will in particular give us the opportunity to address the growing challenges that demographic change are bringing to our world. We expect this to facilitate contact and communication between the ILCs enabling much more collaboration and joint work. The first example of this, initiated by the ILC-UK is a collection of worldwide responses on the topic of’ Retirement age’. There are many other topics we hope to collaborate on and share expertise and experience worldwide.

I must thank ILC Japan for setting up the website for the Alliance in its early years, on which we have built and expanded to provide new ILC global Website from now.

Please do all participate and join us in this world initiative.
