The secretariat

The Commission was set up by New Philanthropy Capital (NPC) and the International Longevity Centre-UK (ILC-UK). They both provided secretariat support to the Commission.

About NPC

NPC is a charity think tank and consultancy which occupies a unique position at the nexus between charities and funders, helping them to achieve the greatest impact. We are driven by the values and mission of the charity sector, to which we bring the rigour, clarity and analysis needed to better achieve the outcomes we all seek. We also share the motivations and passion of funders, to which we bring our expertise, experience and track record of success.

For NPC, an ageing society is an important strategic issue facing the sector, and we feel that we can play a role in putting it on the agenda.
