The Centre for Ageing Better has launched a new age-positive image library on its website with the goal of combating negative stereotypes of older people.
The free library aims to showcase “positive and realistic” images of older people.
The centre said that it hopes to overcome the stereotypes created by the frequent use of pictures like “wrinkly hands” and walking sticks.
The library so far contains more than 400 images and will be updated regularly.
Its contents are now free for use by organisations needing to depict older people.
The Centre for Ageing Better is an independent charitable foundation funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.
Its aim is to help everyone in the UK enjoy later life.
