Working Groups: Older Person Friendly City Group
This group meets about 10 times per year and has a programme of work on assessing older person friendly environments. Using a checklist based on members views on what is important to older people, members of the working group have carried out systematic assessments of Newcastle City Centre and Parks and Recreation Areas. In 2010 the programme of work included older person friendly shopping, assessing supermarkets in the city. The group also scrutinised new developments in the city centre for features that will make them acceptable and attractive to older people e.g. Stephenson Quarter, Old Eldon Square, East Pilgrim Street and Science Central. To join the working group, contact the Co-ordinator, email@example.com or telephone 0191 208 2701.
