Age Friendly Middlesbrough

Our ambition is to make Middlesbrough an Age Friendly Community, where older people live happy and healthy lives. 

We are gathering evidence of the age friendly work that is already happening so that we can apply to the World Health Organisation to join the international network of Age Friendly places.    

Leading our vision to become Age Friendly is a partnership of people from Ageing Better Middlesbrough, Ageing Better Middlesbrough Action Group (ABMAG) – an action group of older people, Public Health and the National Lottery Community Fund.  

You can find out more about Age Friendly Communities Network here  

Age Friendly Middlesbrough Fund  

We launched our Age Friendly Middlesbrough Fund to support community groups and individuals help older people live happy and healthy lives through awards of up to £3000.

The activity must be targeted at people who live in Middlesbrough and must benefit people aged 50 and over.
