"We ensure that all our policies and practices take into account the impact on, and provide support for, older people in our City Region."

Our society is ageing.  The number of people aged 65 and over is set to rise by 40% over the next 20 years.  This change will create new demands for technologies, products and services.

The Liverpool City Region Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram is committed to making our region the best place to age in the UK.

In May 2020 Liverpool City Region Combined Authority joined the UK Network of Age Friendly Communities.  You can read the Metro Mayor’s Letter of Commitment HERE.

In September 2020 we aim to submit our application to join the World Health Organisation Network of Age Friendly Communities.
