We’ll do this by engaging in focus groups, co-production events, mystery shopping, volunteer roles, and a city wide launch – all of which is aimed to empower people aged 50+ to have their voices heard. We’ll also be working with organisations across the city so that we can influence future strategic and political decision making.

Who can get involved?

Everyone! Whether you’re an older person, work in the city, or want to get involved to help make a difference in your community, we’d love to work with you. We want as many people to be involved as possible.
