People & communities Improving areas for older people

Making the city more age-friendly

We work to make places and spaces like buildings, village centres and parks pleasant, enjoyable and welcoming for older people.  This involves making things accessible, in particular looking at how they are designed with older people in mind.

We work jointly with older people, NHS services and Council Ward Coordination and Regeneration teams to develop age-friendly neighbourhoods.
