Levelling Up is about a fundamental systems change to allow local places to overcome their own challenges, including those faced by people of different ages. As such, the Levelling Up White Paper includes specific policy initiatives to spread opportunities for people in all stages of their life. This includes creating 55 Education Investment Areas in England; supporting families by investing £300 million to build the network of Family Hubs and transform Start for Life services for parents, babies, carers and children; and setting up the Older People’s Taskforce to make sure that older people can live in homes which suit their needs.
