Much of the work to draw attention to the issues around ageing and safe mobility has been pioneered by age-related charities and others working in the NGO sector.

‘Fit to Drive?’ from PACTS and ‘Supporting Safe Driving into Old Age’ from the Road Safety Foundation both signposted some of the structural challenges that need to be addressed to serve an ageing population who need to maintain mobility for longer. These reports provided some of the impetus to this project.

These pieces of work from the transport sector are only one side of the coin, as the age-related charities also push to ensure that older citizens are recognised for their huge contribution to society for which their continued safe mobility is vital.

The Policy Review drew extensively on work from these sources and our work was informed by an advisory panel that involved many of them. Our thanks go out to the organisations for the continued efforts in ensuring safe mobility in later life.
