Ageing Well

Ageing Well Principles - flower
South Ayrshire is part of the UK Age Friendly Community Network which enables people to age well and live a good later life. To make these improvements, Age-friendly communities follow the World Health Organisation's 8 areas that support people to age well. 

We are committed to building a grassroots movement to create opportunities for healthy ageing in South Ayrshire that is owned and supported by all sectors and partners - led by our local Community Planning Partnership. 

As part of this commitment, we are developing an Ageing Well Strategy for South Ayrshire. To help us develop the strategy, we want to understand how we can support people across South Ayrshire to age well and work with our stakeholders and local communities to codesign what our key priorities should be. Read our briefing update to see our approach to the Ageing Well Programme and keep an eye out on our website, for future opportunities to have your say.

This ambitious and existing programme of work is led by our Ageing Well Movement and Strategy Board and supported by our Ageing Well Champions Board.

Our future vision for supporting older people in South Ayrshire is set out in our Ageing Well Vision Statement.
