Staffordshire Housing Association have launched free Age Awareness training for local organisations.

The half day interactive sessions will look at how businesses and organisations can become age friendly, tackle common myths and attitudes about getting older and explore the disadvantages faced by older people.

The event is part of the Stoke-on-Trent City Council’s Age Friendly Cities initiative.
