What do businesses have to do?

Businesses work through a checklist to evidence what they are already doing that is age friendly and make small changes as required.  By becoming age friendly they will ensure that:

  • Customers feel valued
  • There is safe and easy access
  • They are community focused and communicate effectively
  • They have a valued age-friendly workforce
