Ageing well in Bridgend

One thing we all have in common is ageing, so it’s in everyone’s best interests to make our county borough a place where people of all ages realise their contribution to society and feel a sense of purpose and value in their lives.

Ageing well in Bridgend acts as a useful information source to help older people maintain daily independence and feel connected in their local communities.

Here you’ll find information to help you to lead an active, fulfilling lifestyle and useful links to initiatives and support for older people. Find out about local hobby groups, events and activities, as well as practical information relevant to older people’s needs.

We also aim to raise awareness of issues faced by older people in Bridgend County Borough, to view our full Ageing Well in Bridgend plan click here.
