Living later life to the full

The people of Kent are living longer, healthier lives than ever before. This brings huge opportunities because it is often in people’s later years that they have the time to get involved in community life. This is also a time when they have built up a wealth of knowledge and life-experience from which younger people can benefit. We need to design Kent’s communities and service provision in a way that encourages social interaction both within and between the generations, enables people to lead the lives they want as well as make a full contribution to society.

Living later life to the full, sets out how people in Kent want to live their later lives and what they want from public and community services and facilities.
