City for all ages

Bristol: A City for All Ages is a collaboration between partners across the city working to make Bristol a great place for everyone at every age, focussing particularly on children and older people.

 

As Bristol Ageing Better, we are funded to deliver services that will improves the lives of people over 50. All of our work puts older people at the heart of the programme and for everything; we engage with, we champion the perspective of older people.

However, because our primary focus is age and older people, it does not mean that our work can’t also benefit the city as a whole. When we are looking at the barriers that affect older people, we are usually also looking at barriers that affect children and young people, people with dementia, people with disabilities or anyone else.

  • When we consider the number of benches or access to toilets to help people get through Bristol safely and comfortably, this information is also a benefit to parents and children and others.
  • When we review how clear and legible signs and posters, this can be done to considered people with sensory impairment or learning disability.
  • When we consider how public transport could be more age friendly, wqe are also how it can be accessible and a better experience for everyone.

Bristol Ageing Better is committed to working with partners on these challenges and to show this collaborative commitment, “A city for All Ages” has been created to represent the fact that while we are all individual with different targets, we all have one joint vision of a friendly and more accessible city for everyone.
