Many older people in the UK live in rural communities.

There are places where people are developing cities that work well for older people.

Rural Wisdom is a project to develop rural communities that are older-people-friendly.

The Rural Wisdom project will ensure that older people in both Scotland and Wales will have their voices heard about things which matter most to them.

It is a great example of how National Lottery funding can make a real difference to people’s lives and specifically the lives of older people living in rural communities.
 
I am sure that it will bring many benefits to those involved, including boosting confidence and skills and empowering older people to participate in and shape activities within their local areas.”
