Age Friendly Charter

On Wednesday 21st June 2017, at Central Library, BAB launched the Charter for an Age Friendly Bristol. The charter sets up 9 visions for Bristol, and cements the city’s commitment to be part of the World Health Organisation (WHO)’s Global Network of Age Friendly Communities. Bristol Ageing Better and Bristol City Council are committed to meeting the standards set out by the WHO and will be working together to achieve it.

The charter was created after years of consultation, with older people, local organisations working within communities and decision makers. It includes 9 visions that expand on the World Health Organisation’s age friendly themes, setting out a Bristol-specific ambition.

The aim of this work is to use the process of applying to the World Health Organisation as an opportunity to consult Bristol residents about what can be done to improve accessibility for people of all ages.

From this charter, Bristol Ageing Better will be creating an overall action plan that will capture all of the great work that is currently happening in Bristol to make it a city that is great to grow old in.
