This leads to
age discrimination.
What does Everyone's Future aim to do about Age Discrimination?
Challenge and decrease negative stereotypes of older and younger people. So reducing discrimination.

Raise awareness of the social exclusion faced by older / younger people that result from discrimination.

Promote better relationships between the different generations.

Create better community cohesion and increase community safety.

Enhance the wellbeing, self-esteem and confidence of the different age groups.
We Aim to...
We aim to use our organisations' expertise and experience in working with older and younger people to encourage others to think differently about age.
How are we going to do this?
Is it time to start thinking differently about age?

Deliver interactive workshops to a range of groups and organisations across Cardiff and the Vale.

Films will be used as a catalyst to promote discussion around stereotyping and age discrimination.

Challenge the negative stereotypes of older and younger people.
At the end of each workshop a pledge will be made.

This will empower individuals and improve community cohesion.



Get involved in 12 Community Events to promote the project.

Hold our own Everyone’s Future events to showcase intergenerational work.

Improve policy and practice by having involvement with core aim groups, strategy groups, conferences and forums.

An Everyone’s Future Working Group will be set up involving volunteers.
It's not just your future or my future, but Everyone's
