Age-friendly Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough Council is proud to have joined the World Health Organisation's Global Network for Age-friendly Cities and Communities. We're working in partnership with key organisations to create an age-friendly town where older people can live healthy and active lives. You can find out more about age-friendly communities on the Centre for Ageing Better website.

Age-friendly Middlesbrough is led by Public Health South Tees, in partnership with older people and local charity organisations. You can email agefriendly@middlesbrough.gov.uk for more information.
