Age-friendly Bristol resources

In November 2018, the World Health Organisation (WHO) accepted Bristol’s application to become the 705th member of the Global Network of Age-friendly Communities. The network represents cities and communities across the world who are all committed to making their areas better for older people, which also has a positive impact on the community as a whole. 

To submit an application to the WHO, Bristol had to write a baseline assessment and a strategy considering the eight domains that make up an Age-friendly City. Bristol’s application was submitted by Bristol Ageing Better (BAB) and represented work from BAB, Age UK Bristol and Bristol City Council.
