Age Friendly City

“An age-friendly city encourages active ageing by optimizing opportunities for health, participation and security in order to enhance quality of life as people age. In practical terms, an age-friendly city adapts its structures and services to be accessible to and inclusive of older people with varying needs and capacities.”

World Health Organisation

The BAB Age Friendly City Project is about changing and improving aspects of the city to make Bristol more Age-Friendly. As part of our ‘Creating the Conditions’ theme,  we will apply to be recognised as an Age Friendly City by the World Health Organisation and through this process, we will seek to encourage change and adaptation across the City. We will work with older people and partners from across Public, Private and Voluntary and Community sectors to make Bristol more age-friendly, supporting local examples of change as well as looking at how we can influence decisions and practices that will embed age-friendly attitudes into all aspects of the City.
