Let's all work together to build a city that works for all of us whilst we age. Sign up to our enewsletter below to receive monthly updates.
An Age-friendly Sheffield is for everyone, therefore it makes sense that everyone can get involved with building it!
The more organisations, individuals and groups we have engaged with building an Age-friendly Sheffield, the best chance we have at building a city that truly caters to everyone as they grow older.
This is where you come in!
There are many ways, big and small, that organisations and individuals can join the age-friendly mission and make Sheffield a great place to grow up and grow older in.
- Sharing our wealth of learning with your networks.
- Joining the conversation on social media using the hashtag #AgeFriendlySheffield! Share an age-friendly experience or idea you’ve had, age-friendly knowledge or your support for an Age-friendly Sheffield.
- Having conversations with friends and families and encouraging them think about how they move around our city and how this might be different for people of different ages.
- Making changes in your place of work to ensure staff and customers are all given the best experience no matter what their age. Let’s all work together a build a city we are proud of.
We also have a micro-funding scheme to support with this – Adding Life to Years: Active Ageing Micro-funding supporting an Age-friendly Sheffield. We are offering between £200 and £2000 of micro-funding to individuals, organisations and community groups for initiatives that support active ageing across any of the above areas.
Stay tuned in the next few months as we’ll be sharing some more opportunities for individuals and organisations to get involved with our growing Age-friendly Sheffield.
