Ageing Well

We believe that Blackburn with Darwen is a good place to live and to grow old. We also recognise that the older people who live in Blackburn with Darwen contribute a great deal of talent, experience and knowledge to our communities. We want to enable our older population to:

    • Have a strong voice in influencing local policy and services
    • Take and maintain responsibility for their lives
    • Remain healthy and active
    • Retain their independence
    • Be able to access services
    • Benefit from and contribute through employment, volunteering and learning
    • Live in a safe environment that maintains links with family and friends
    • Maintain their roles as partners, carers, grandparents, employees
