The charity aims to promote the interests of older people through research, policy analysis and the dissemination of information - and always by drawing directly on the experiences of older people themselves to enhance the sharing of knowledge and good practice in all sectors.

Gillian has developed the unique information resources, called AgeInfo, to establish an evidence base for the field of ageing. She has participated in numerous projects on a range of topics around ageing, most recently exploring older people's vision for long term care; age discrimination in health and social care services; promoting the financial wellbeing of older people; and independent living for older people with high support needs.

Gillian sits on several advisory and research groups, including the UK Advisory Forum on Ageing and is a trustee of In Control.
