Improving service delivery to an ageing population

The ageing population challenges for local authorities

Improving service delivery to an ageing population



The challenge that the UK’s rapidly ageing population presents local government is a national problem. Yet it is not one that will be equally shared by all councils. According to a new report commissioned by Deloitte from the London School of Economics and Political Science, variation in the ‘intensity’ of the ageing population is not well understood by local authorities.

Key findings

The report finds that the impact of the ageing population will be at its most acute in areas where there are small numbers of young people and higher demands due to characteristics such as poor health or social isolation. Thirty shire counties and unitary authorities will face the most acute implications with London boroughs facing the least.
