Lifelong Health and Wellbeing (LLHW)

6m committed by ESRC and MRC to support eight collaborative LLHW research awards addressing the challenges of working later in life


Life expectancy in the UK is increasing at an unprecedented rate. One in six people are currently over 65. By 2033 that figure is projected to rise to 25% of the UKs population.

Lifelong Health and Wellbeing (LLHW) is a major cross-council initiative established to meet the challenges and opportunities of an ageing population.

The LLHW programme supports research addressing factors throughout life that influence health and wellbeing in older age.
