Ageing and health
We’re committed to creating an inclusive and accessible city for our older population, which is why Brighton & Hove is a member of the World Health Organisation (WHO) Age Friendly City (AFC) network. Working with policy makers, service providers and older people in our city, we continually assess and improve the city’s ‘age friendliness’. As part of the AFC network we share ideas, best practice and information to help us make our city a place where older people feel fully included.
