Our Mission

To promote the well being of all older people in and around York, enabling them to make life fulfilling and enjoyable.

Four aims have been identified to fulfill our mission:

  1. As a caring organisation, we aim to build on those caring and supportive services, which have proved effective and to identify through consultation, additional services.
  2. We undertake to influence policy makers to ensure the needs of older people are anticipated and met and that the voice of older people is heard in the decision making.
  3. To work in effective partnerships, which will deliver worthwhile benefits to older people from all the community, make better use of joint resources and introduce additional resources.
  4. To apply our own and others experience and the views of older people in new and innovative ways to meet needs, promote positive images of older people and to challenge negative attitudes towards ageing.
