Ageing-Friendly Sheffield

We’re incredibly excited to be working with two local organisations as we explore Sheffield becoming an Ageing Friendly City.

What to expect?

Over the next few years the teams at Lai Yin Association and Age UK Sheffield will be providing opportunities to build the pathway to an 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.

“The World Health Organisation describes an Age-friendly City or Community as a place where “the physical and social environment are designed to support and enable older people to “age actively” – that is, to live in security, enjoy good health and continue to participate fully in society.”

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 is it for?

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!
