Age Friendly City Bid

Stoke-on-Trent Healthy City wishes to commission external support in developing the Stoke approach to 'Age Friendly City'.  This is a key plank of our commitment to the WHO Healthy Cities Network.   The purpose at this stage is to carry out a base-lining exercise in the City and draw up an Age Friendly City action plan which has the following characteristics: -

  • Addresses social determinants of health
  • Is developed through discussion and participation with key partners and stakeholders, including older people in the City, and so has ownership by key partners and stakeholders
  • Gives a realistic steer on how all partners, including Older People, can contribute to Age Friendly City, within current financial constraints
  • Undertakes a cost benefits analysis of proposed interventions
  • Is true to WHO Age Friendly City principles, but is clearly embedded in what matters to Stoke on Trent.

Manchester is the first formally WHO endorsed Age Friendly City in the UK, and quotes from organisations who have experience or depth of understanding of the work in Manchester   or other Cilties would be paricularly welcomed.

Healthy City has allocated £15,000 for ths work and it is anticipated that the baselining exercise will be completed by no later than the end of October 2011.

If you are interested in submitting a quotes for this work, please respond to Judy Kurth (details below) by no later than 12.00 noon,  24th June 2011 outlining as succinctly but informatively as possible: -

1. Your understanding of Age Friendly Cities

2. Experience of Age Friendly Cities

3. Your proposed approach to undertaking the baselining and action planning process

4. The partners and stakeholders you would anticipate engaging with

5. Timescales

6. Costs, including financial breakdown
