Gordon is Policy & Campaigns Manager at Age UK London, the regional campaigning information and development organisation for Age UK. He has worked there since October 2003, and before that in a variety of voluntary sector policy and campaigns roles since 1990. Having started work as a linguist, Gordon's career has brought him from Scotland to London via various European countries. His last position before joining Age Concern was with AGE, the European Older People's Platform. Born in 1959, Gordon hopes for a future free of age discimination at work and in life as a whole.
