The Mayor and I are committed to making London a fairer and more inclusive city and that includes celebrating the significant contribution that older Londoners make to our capital. I am proud that London has signed up to the World Health Organisation’s global network of age-friendly cities and we are determined to help make London a dementia friendly city by 2020. Stay Safe supports our mission to make London a city where everyone can thrive and focuses our attention on improving the lives of older Londoners by providing support, interactive workshops and of course, Stay Safe Week.
