No-one fears ageing.
Older people feel connected, respected, listened to, supported, and enabled to enjoy a life of quality, opportunity, and dignity.
Making a positive difference by putting older people, and the people around them, at the heart of all we do; working with partner organisations, to improve the quality of later life and provide effective, timely support for those who need it the most.
Age UK York has three strategic aims:
- Working with older people, those around them and partner organisations, to develop and deliver appropriate quality services that are effective in meeting their needs and expectations.
- Actively represent the voices of older people to those policy makers and others whose decisions will affect them – this includes promoting positive attitudes to ageing, challenging prejudice and bias about older people wherever it may exist.
- Collaborate and build partnerships with others, to undertake joined-up working, making efficient use of resources to optimise benefits for older people.
