Age Friendly Ryde

As part of the Age Friendly Island Initiative a working group has been established in Ryde consisting of councillors from the wards of Ryde East, Ryde South and Ryde North West, staff from Community Action IW, the lead member of Supporting our Senior of Nettlestone and Seaview Community Partnership and the Priest in Charge from St John’s Oakfield and Holy Trinity Ryde.  The working group has agreed to review the provision in the wards against the World Health Organisation’s domains of Transport and Mobility and Respect and Social inclusion. Research will be undertaken of the transport & mobility barriers in these areas for older frail people and those with disabilities when accessing local services and amenities and investigate what actions can be taken by partners take to overcome these barriers.
