A City for All Ages

A City for All Ages is a pioneering 10-year strategic vision and action plan combining committed, integrated activity from Edinburgh City Council and its partners to improve the quality of life for older people. Since 2000 the active involvement of older people at city and local levels has successfully delivered externally evaluated goals covering social, economic, political, cultural and educational spheres. International recognition through the World Health Organisation (WHO) identifies the ground breaking joint strategy as a holistic approach for development. Despite no dedicated funding the strategy is sustained through existing structures and resources. It addresses demographic changes and needs, including those in ethnic and minority communities, to promote human solidarity across all groups and generations.
