Age Friendly Banbury is an exciting new joint initiative to make Banbury a great place to grow older. There are already some great groups and opportunities for older people in Banbury, but for some older people poor transport, unsuitable housing, fear of crime, lack of community cohesion, lack of care and support, and difficulty finding or getting to social activities can get in the way of enjoying their later years. These are wide ranging issues which require a wider ranging response. 

Before we go any further, we need to know what you think are the main things that will help make Banbury a great place to grow old. Please tell us what you think by completing our confidential survey. The closing date is 26th July 2018.
