Age Friendly Island

The Age Friendly Island programme is an Ageing Better partnership funded by the National Lottery aiming to make the Isle of Wight a great place to grow older, encourage better relations between generations, and tackle social isolation and loneliness.

The programme includes a number of projects made up of organisations committed to building an island that values, respects, engages and actively supports older people, with the voice of older residents at the heart.  Projects include helping older people to start their own business, SingAbout music therapy groups, social groups for men, digital technology classes as well as advice, help and support where needed.
