  • 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

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.
