The Age Friendly programme wants to help improve the quality of life for older people living within the Derry City and Strabane District Council area.  As an Age Friendly Community it is important for us to all work together to identify and make the changes in both the physical environment (e.g. transport, housing, outdoors spaces) and social environment (e.g. volunteering, leisure, employment, and services) that are relevant to enable people to lead healthy and active later lives.  Because older people know best what they need, it is really important that you are at the centre of any efforts to create a more age-friendly community for Derry City and Strabane.

We will use this survey to assess our City and Districts age friendliness in relation to the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) Age Friendly Cities Framework.  This framework proposes eight interconnected domains that can help to identify and address barriers to the well-being and participation of older people.  All information gathered will help to develop a baseline assessment of the age friendliness of our city and district which will support the co design and development of an Age Friendly Strategy and action plan.  The eight domains of the Age Friendly Framework are:

Outdoor Spaces & Buildings
Transportation
Housing
Social Participation
Respect & Social Inclusion
Civic Participation & Employment
Communication & Information
Community Support & Health Services

The information gathered will be held in the strictest confidence and will not be used for any other purposes.
