Age Friendly Campaign - Candidates

We are calling upon election candidates to pledge a commitment that, if elected, they will play an active role in working to promote Age Friendly in their council and in the communities it serves.

As a councillor you will have a key role to play in promoting Age Friendly and supporting your council in the development and implementation of Age Friendly plans for your area. We believe that everybody should be able to live in an age-friendly world that enables people of all ages to participate in the life of their local community, connected to each other and to opportunities in their local area, valued for the contribution they can and do make to their local community.  

As an Age Friendly Champion you agree to…

Promote and support good Age Friendly practice and planning in your council.
Engage with older people’s groups and networks. Listen to, understand and act on older people’s views to improve their neighbourhood.
Drive engagement and coproduction with older people at community level.
Encourage and adequately resource Age Friendly initiatives that improve older people’s wellbeing and connections and reduce loneliness and social isolation.
Support council staff in their work advancing Age Friendly planning, practices and partnerships.
Encourage Age Friendly partnerships to explore evidence based, intergenerational approaches to creating great places to grow old for everyone.
Value the contribution older people make in their communities.
