Talkabout citizens' panel

We're currently updating Talkabout, our citizens' panel, which is one of the ways you can give us your feedback and views and influence what happens in York.

My City Centre York

After listening to your views, as a vital part of the My City Centre York project, we've produced the My City Centre York draft vision.

We want to create a vibrant city centre; a city centre that can adapt to change. We're asking you to get involved in the My City Centre York draft vision consultation, to help set out a plan for the city centre, so it continues to meet the social, economic and environmental needs of York and its communities, for decades to come...

Live Well York 2021

Live Well York is a community information and advice website for adults and families who live in York. The website is a collaboration across 19 partner organisations.

We want to ensure we provide good quality information that enables people to find what they require to have a good quality of life and maintain their wellbeing. It is important to us therefore to know when we have got it right, what difference that has made and where we can improve.

Our questionnaire will take about 10 minutes to complete and we would very much appreciate your feedback. To take part complete the Live Well York 2021 survey.

Our Big Conversation

Our Big Conversation

Over the next 12 months taking part in 'Our Big Conversation' will give you the opportunity to shape our response to the big challenges facing York, such as:

  • our response and recovery after the Coronavirus pandemic
  • the climate emergency
  • how we move around the city
  • defining an exciting future for our city centre and district centres
  • where we live and work, what jobs are available
  • how we make sure York's economy works for all residents

Age Friendly York

We want older residents to help shape where they live by working with local groups, businesses and the council to identify and make changes to their physical and social environments.

Age Friendly York will:

  • enable people to live healthy and active lives
  • encourage communities to treat people with respect, regardless of their age

We will ensure decisions are resident focused by:

  • providing the opportunity to feedback at any point, through all aspects covered by Age Friendly York - there is no wrong time to have a view
  • to ensure you have access to what the key findings are from the consultations and how these directly inform the action plan
  • to ensure information is available about what has been achieved so far

We welcome your comments if:

  • you live in York and are an older person or have an interest in ensuring the best experience for people growing old in York
  • you work for an organisation that meets the interest of older people in York
  • you are part of a volunteer group that engages with older people
  • you are a carer or have a neighbour or relative that is an older person in York

We are therefore building the opportunities for continual feedback. Whether you have a single comment, want to add an additional comment to an Age Friendly York survey you have completed or want to provide your views for the first time, you can do so via these ongoing online surveys:

You can also provide general feedback via email: or Twitter: @AgeFriendlyYork.
