Age-friendly online resource hub

We have a range of resources to support our age-friendly work, as well as to help you understand more about older people and ageing better.

Unfortunately, none of the local resource PDFs are accessible. Please email agefriendly@middlesbrough.gov.uk if you need this information in a different format. As the national resources are available on other websites, we cannot say whether or not they are accessible.
