Age Friendly York consultations

York is part of the Age Friendly Network; we're working to ensure you're able to live healthy and active lives as you grow older. We want more older residents to become active, healthy citizens, involved in shaping where they live, by working alongside local groups, councils and businesses, to identify and make changes to both the physical and social environment.

We'll use Age Friendly Network 'statements' to establish what to we should achieve, covering:

  • your journey
  • your destination
  • your time
  • your access to information
  • your home
  • your services

See results from the 'your journey' consultation - our findings will be built upon in a more detailed transport survey, led by York Civic Trust in September, find out more via www.LiveWellYork.co.uk. If you still want to contribute it's not too late, simply email: AgeFriendlyYork@york.gov.uk and we'll include your comments.

'Your destination'

Share your views in our online survey about 'your destination', alternatively email: AgeFriendlyYork@york.gov.uk or telephone: 01904 554595 to take part 'offline'.

Complete the 'your destination' survey (which asks your views on up to three public areas and green spaces you may use) 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
  • work for an organisation that meets the interest of older people
  • are part of a volunteer group that engages with older people
  • are a carer or have a neighbour or relative that is an older person in York

*Older person is deliberately not stated as a specific age, as people like to self-define and we're looking for people to plan ahead for older age.

Consultation closes at midnight on 13 October 2019
