Age Friendly Swansea

As a nation, we're living longer so it's in our interest to make our communities as age friendly as possible.

What would an 'age friendly Swansea' look like?                                            

In an age friendly Swansea older people would not experience barriers to independent living.

They will enjoy good health; live safely; will be free from discrimination; and will remain actively engaged within their community.

By developing communities, advocacy and policy changes, we all stand to gain from empowering older people.
