HelpAge International helps older people claim their rights, challenge discrimination and overcome poverty, so that they can lead dignified, secure, active and healthy lives.

The four areas of the impact cycle within our theory of change (ToC):

We deliver programmes directly and support network members to do the same to enable us to develop and test service delivery models for older people in a practical way, including responding to humanitarian crises.

We advocate and campaign for change as a network, which enables us to bring our collective experience to bear on policy and wider public attitudes towards older people and ageing.

We actively strengthen the collective voice of older people and our network members on the world stage.

We take an active approach to learning as a network based on the evidence we and our network members generate through programming and policy work, and use this knowledge to inform global debates on ageing, influence change and improve our own practice.
