Older People’s Day is a global awareness day, but here in the UK, it is used primarily to celebrate the achievements and contributions that older people make to our society and tackle negative attitudes and outdated stereotypes.

UN International Day of Older Persons is known as Older People’s Day in the United Kingdom. The Older People’s Day website states:

The main aim for the day is to be a celebration of the achievements and contributions that older people make to our society and the economy. Older People’s Day supports the campaign to challenge negative attitudes and outdated stereotypes.
