Age Well Campaign

A message from Kathryn Brooks
West Sussex County Council

Please find below details of WSCC’s Age Well campaign. This is running for the next few months and will focus on different themes.

A new Age Well campaign has been launched by the West Sussex Health and Wellbeing Board, aimed to celebrate our older residents and support them in staying healthy, well and independent as they grow older in West Sussex.

Amanda Jupp, Chairman of the West Sussex Health and Wellbeing Board, said: “West Sussex is already a great place to live and we just want to make it even better for our growing number of older residents.”

Over the next few months there will be information and advice about how to age well, from how to make sure your home is safer, connecting with your community, improving and maintaining your mental health, and becoming more active with good financial plans for the future.

People can also sign up to a regular newsletter and can find out more on the campaign website.

The objectives of the campaign are to:

  • Improve the health and wellbeing of older people in West Sussex;
  • Raise awareness of positive approaches to healthy ageing which help people to live well as they age;
  • Celebrate the contribution which older people make to our communities, and the skills, knowledge and experience which they bring;
  • Share practical ideas for action and signpost local resources and best practice which can enable people to improve their health and wellbeing;
  • Tackle ageism and present a positive narrative of ageing well, demonstrating that West Sussex is a good place to grow old.

Kind Regards
