Elders Voice grew out of an organisation called The Pensioners’ Link Movement, whose founding principle was to improve the lives of older people, and the organisation continues to work towards those principles today.
Caring and valuing older people are at the heart of the charity’s identity as embodied by its logo. The logo is a circle with a heart at its centre and the heart is made up of two interlocking bodies. The circle symbolises Elders Voice’s holistic approach to service provision and the heart is symbolic of the organisation’s caring ethos that puts older people at the centre of all its work.
