New website for older people in Cardiff

A new age-friendly website has been launched in Cardiff to provide a one-stop shop of useful information and resources to support older people living in the city.

The site Age Friendly Cardiff was launched at the weekend to coincide with the annual United Nations International Day of Older Persons (October 1).

Age Friendly Cardiff is a network of organisations including Cardiff Council, Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, South Wales Fire and Rescue Service, South Wales Police, third sector partners and other services, dedicated to making the city a better place for people to grow older.

The network has been working towards making Cardiff a more age friendly place for residents and visitors for a number of years and last year, the city joined the World Health Organization’s Global Network for Age-friendly Cities and Communities, becoming its first Welsh member.

The website has been designed to help older people in Cardiff to live well by providing information on local services, activities and support.

The Council’s Older Person’s Champion and Cabinet Member for Social Services (Adults), Norma Mackie, said: “Working together with our partners, the council is committed to making our city a better place for older people to live and thrive in.

“We want to ensure that older people can enjoy all aspects of city life and have the opportunity to take part in activities and events to improve their wellbeing and enrich their lives.

“Often though, it can be difficult to know where to go for information and support about what’s available but the new Age Friendly Cardiff website solves that problem. It’s a brilliant resource, packed full of useful information, to support older people to live well.”
