We now have a new gla assembly and mayor - so when we will get an age friendly london?

Well we tried our best, as PAIL- London's age forum and our partners Age UK London and fellow members of London Age Friendly coalition - to raise the profile of older Londoners, their priorities for an age friendly London action plan.

We did well to get an endorsement from the Greens and Liberal democrats and we now hope we will get the support of the GLA assembly to push for an early agreed action plan.

As we have been working with the Mayor and have played an active part in supporting Sadiq Khan's commitment to joining the age friendly city network we are now hoping that we can push for an early commitment to a timetable to put in place an action plan to make this happen.

It is unfortunate that this has taken so long ( despite lip service to this approach being made by Livingstone, Johnson and Khan ) to go beyond rhetoric into practical implementation of a partnership driven commitment to age friendly actions for London. Manchester, Leeds and now other cities and areas are leading the way with lots of innovative actions and partnerships and as the UK's most important city we really hope we can join in this process starting by June and completing ny October 1st- international day for older people
