Bromley Council and NHS Bromley Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are working together to consider how the borough can better support local residents to live well in their later years

To help us do this we are working together with local residents, professionals and partners to develop a new joint Strategy for Ageing Well in Bromley. The strategy will look at current and future population trends and needs across the borough and consider how best to support people to live happily, healthily and independently

We know that the numbers of Bromley residents who are 65 and over are increasing and that people are living longer. However, where you live can have a significant impact on your life expectancy and there is an increase in the number of people living with long term conditions.

Consultation update

After seven full and informative weeks of engagement over the summer, the online survey is now closed. We have attended over 35 engagement sessions and have received nearly 600 completed surveys, which is a good response - so thank you to everyone who has taken the time to attend one of the sessions that have taken place across the borough, including the very successful public open meeting on Friday 24 August at the Civic Centre, and also those who completed the survey.

We are now working to bring together and analyse everything that we have been told through feedback, the results from the surveys and the face to face engagements.

We intend to publish the results of the survey later in autumn with an update on the next steps of developing the Strategy for Ageing Well in Bromley.
