Accessible communities enable people to stay connected, participate in social activities and access local services and facilities. Well-maintained and well-lit streets, clear signposting, green spaces and public toilets all support older people to stay active and lead independent lives.
What sort of projects might be relevant to this domain?
- Making sure parks and green spaces can be enjoyed by everyone (lighting, benches etc.)
- Improving access to community buildings to enable everyone to participate
- Ensuring access to toilets in places where they are needed (e.g. town centres, parks, walking routes)
- Crossing places are easy to use by people with sensory impairment or mobility issues.
