Age Friendly Sheffield – October 2019 Awards Ceremony

26 Jun

What is it all about?

Over the next few years our team at Age UK Sheffield and the team at the Lai Yin Association will be providing opportunities to build the pathway to becoming a World Health Organisation Ageing Friendly Sheffield! This is going to involve bringing local residents, communities, citywide organisations, partners, and key players together to collaborate in the design, delivery and evaluation of the project.

How we’ll do this

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.

Get in Touch

We are currently looking for people who would like to join our working groups and our steering groups. See the information attached to find out more.
