By the end of the 1.5 hour workshop you will:

Understand what we mean by an 'Age-Friendly City' and how businesses can help Bristol achieve that goal:

  • Be aware of the benefits of attracting older people to your business
  • Understand the life events, physical changes and societal attitudes that can pose challenges in accessing businesses in later life
  • Be equipped with some communication skills that will benefit a range of older people who have different age-related needs
  • Enable you to look at the physical environment of your business premises and identify how it could be made more accessible to older people
  • Be able to come up with ways to adjust your advertising, communication and customer service to meet the needs of older people
  • Understand the benefits of employing people aged 50+ and how to remove barriers to recruitment

There will also be the opportunity to apply for up to £1, 000 (non-repayable) to make improvements to your business. These awards will be given shortly after applicants have attended a workshop.
