The AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities was established in 2012 to support cities and communities across the US to better meet the needs of all residents as they age.   Communities in the AARP network commit to a process of continual improvement and engagement to enhance active-aging and quality of life for residents of all ages.   

The network is an affiliate of the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) Global Network of Age-friendly Cities which developed a framework of assessment covering eight domains of city and community livability.

AARP has over 60 years’ experience of supporting communities in the US to become great places for all ages and has a range of expertise, resources, case studies and publications.  A toolkit has been developed to support AARP network members through each step in the process of becoming more age-friendly.
