Age-Friendly Business

Our Age-Friendly Business scheme helps promote local businesses across that are working hard to meet the needs of Thanet’s older people. As well as committing to working to become age-friendly, businesses also offer incentives/discounts to people aged 50+ as part of our Reward Card scheme.

There are currently over 61,000 older adults aged 50+ living in Thanet, 43% of Thanet's population. This number is expected to grow significantly over the coming years, with the prediction that by 2037 one in every two adults in Thanet will be over 50.

By becoming an Age-Friendly Business you will have the opportunity to market your business to our reward cardholders. As of January 2021 there are over 9,000 reward cards in circulation in Thanet.

Becoming an Age-Friendly Business is FREE and gives you:

  • Free marketing through our app, website, printed directory and social media
  • Age-Friendly Business marketing material
  • *Coming Soon* Age-Friendly training
