Age Concern and Help the Aged are calling on the G'ment to commit to 3 actions to help deal with the ageing tsunami that we keep writing about.
• Scrap the National Defa
• Provide financial incentives to employers who take on 50 plus workers who have been out of work for more than 6 months.
• Provide a tailored package of support for unemployed over 50s‚ including specialised training for JobCentre Plus staff to recognise the specific needs of older people job searching and providing them with meaningful‚ holistic support.
As we keep saying - is anyone listening out there?
