When will London be an age friendly city?
After 4 years of research, writing proposals and responding to the GLAs lack of an action plan for an Age Friendly London we are still waiting for a plan to be published. Wise Age, Positive Ageing in London and the London Age Friendly forum coalition have all submitted detailed responses and recommendations in all the key WHO age friendly areas, but have been repeatedly told to wait. Lets hope that the Mayor, Deputy Mayor for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion plus their GLA staff come good with a detailed and resourced plan which offers genuine partnership with older groups and peoples organisations. After the meeting with GLA today we hope to know more. Having declared in 2018 that London would join the age friendly cities initiative we feel now is the time to make it a reality
