Age Friendly Banbury is a partnership between local organisations committed to making Banbury an age-friendly town. It brings together older people, community leaders, local charities, businesses, and local councils.
“This is a great opportunity for the wider community of Banbury to join together and make Banbury an even greater place to grow older.” - Sir Tony Baldry High Steward of Banbury
BANBURY FOR ALL AGES
Age Friendly Banbury is a joint initiative to make Banbury a great place to grow older. There are already some great groups and opportunities for older people in Banbury. We have found out that for some older people poor transport, unsuitable housing, fear of crime, lack of community cohesion, limited care, and difficulty finding or getting to social activities can get in the way of enjoying their later years. We want to bring all local support and community groups together, with the partners to solve these issues together.
The initial focus is on older people, but the vision is of a ‘Banbury for all ages’ – a friendly and more accessible town for everyone.
