A belated happy new year

I am happy to now return to my blogging and hopefully will be able to keep it going on a regular basis. I will reply to all relevant replies as soon as possible.

First the positive news I was able to set up with my fellow age advisor to the Greater London authority's Equality, Diversity and Inclusion advisory Board Sam plus the leader of the London Borough of Sutton a roundtable of a coalition of the willing London councils to agree how best to work together to make their boroughs age friendly. This happened on 1 February and was pretty successful with 8 councils involved, plus age organisations like PAIL London's age forum plus a rep from the GLA. We are now looking forward to a partnership between older Londoners representatives and London boroughs wishing to take their Age Friendly communities forward. Now the hard work begins and we at PAIL have now set up an age friendly boroughs section on our website www.pailondon.org,uk
