The things that make somewhere a good place to live and work can change as we get older.

Many of us remain active into older age, while some of us experience isolation, loneliness, money worries or poor health. Poor neighbourhood design and / or a lack of services can lead to older people being cut off within communities.

It is vital that the needs of older people are considered to ensure we are all have the opportunity to achieve the best health, wellbeing and quality of life that we are able.
 
  • Tell us how age friendly you think your community is.
  • Score each element out of ten. The higher the score the closer your community is to being suitable for all ages.The lower, the more work needed to make it age friendly.
  • Define community in terms of what it means to you – your village, suburb, town or city.
