UK Network of Age-friendly Communities

We want more people to live in age-friendly communities.

We're working with the UK Network of Age-friendly Communities to bring about change and promote better use of evidence and learning at the local level.

Age-friendly communities foster healthy and active ageing, making it possible for people to continue to stay in their homes, participate in the activities that they value, and contribute to their communities, for as long as possible. We're working to connect communities that share our ambition of becoming more age-friendly so that together we can share learning, disseminate good practice and provide support to places who want to become more age-friendly.

The UK Network of Age-friendly Communities is affiliated to the World Health Organisation Global Network of Age-friendly Cities and Communities (GNAFCC) – a map of UK members is shown below.
