While the Assembly welcomes the coming age discrimination protection laws in Britain, it said more neded to be one to help older Londoners. It recommended that:
- there needs to be a coordinated and integrated approach to employment services for older people in London, within an over-arching strategy,
- more accurate research is needed to establish the numbers of older people looking for work, to ensure that the support services for older people receive the funding levels they require, and
- the London Learning and Skills Councils need to prioritise people over 50 for education and training support.
