can we really get an age friendly London this time?

Now the elections in London for the new mayor and the GLA Assembly I have been working with my friends in London's age forum ( PAiL) and the London Age Friendly coalition to agree and publish our key demands in the 8 domains of the WHO Age Friendly cities network. We have written to all the candidates and are awaiting their responses. Please go to www.pailondon.org.uk to see the full details of our letter and the products of our age friendly London working groups which have been fully researched and draw on the experience and wisdom of a cross section of London's seniors. Please promote and disseminate our demands to make sure that maybe just maybe the next term will see an age friendly London action plan and partnership with older people. It really is a shame that London is so far behind other cities like Leeds, Manchester and also Wales
