Building Age Friendly Towns Seminar highlights collaborative planning as its main theme
An Age Friendly community benefits people of all ages. Secure neighbourhoods are safe for children and young people, women and older adults. Families worry less when their older relations have the services and supports they need. Accessible buildings and streets enhance the mobility and independence of both younger and older people with disabilities. The whole community benefits from the participation of older people in volunteering or paid work and activities. By working together to make our towns, villages and counties age friendly, we can address the needs of not just our older citizens but of all age groups.
The Age Friendly Cities & Counties Programme is affiliated to the WHO Global Network of Age-friendly Cities.
