The UK Government’s ‘Levelling Up’ agenda comes after decades of health inequalities. The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the long-term impacts of the UK’s ongoing cost of living crisis have both increased these inequities. The Health of Older People in Places (HOPE) project is a multidisciplinary research project funded by the Health Foundation showing the links between levels the older people (50-74 years) in a places and employment for all adults (16-74 years) in the same places. The project used the Offi ce for National Statistics Longitudinal Study samples from 2001 and 2011, a nationally representative 1% sample of the English and Welsh censuses, linked across time. Overall, the study found that the higher the proportion of older people with poor health in a place, the less likely it was that any adults in that place will be in paid work
