Age Friendly York documents and minutes

Age Friendly logo

The Age Friendly York project encourages everyone to get involved and ensures everyone’s voice counts. We welcome your comments and feedback on this project.

We've identified the following areas of focus ('domains') in our goal of achieving an Age Friendly York:

Age friendly Communities

By 2040, the Centre for Ageing Better wants more people in later life to:

  • be in good health
  • be financially secure
  • have social connections
  • feel their lives are meaningful and purposeful

See the Age friendly Communities presentation.

Ageing and our local population

Our Public Health and Adult Social Care teams lead the Age Friendly York initiative, and provide a local perspective of ageing in York.

See our Ageing and our local population presentation.

Dementia and Age Friendly York

Dementia is becoming an increasingly important consideration for older people.

Through our Ageing Well Partnership, we've agreed to use a 'dementia friendly' approach when considering our key focus areas.

The Ageing Well Partnership forms part of our Health and Wellbeing Board.

See our Dementia and Age Friendly York presentation.

Age Friendly York Project Plan

The Age Friendly York project plan:

  • outlines how the project will progress
  • ensures we maintain progress

We discuss our project plan at each Ageing Well Partnership meeting.

Getting out and about: baseline assessment

The World Health Organisation requires us to produce a 'baseline assessment', which gives us an opportunity to set out what we currently provide and what you, the residents, think of the quality of what we offer.

Our Getting out and about baseline assessment relates to getting out and about in York.

Getting out and about: consultations

See the key findings of our past consultations. Details of any new consultations will be publshed on this page.

Getting out and about: Operation Group meetings

View minutes from previous Operation Group meetings:

We plan to set up operation groups for each 'domain' as we change our area of focus.
