Age Friendly London Every Day Heroes Campaign Do you know an older person who goes out of their way to brighten the lives of those around them? How about someone who volunteers their time to help neighbours or friends, often without recognition? The Age Friendly London Network wants to know about these “every day heroes” who make our community a better place to live. The Respect & Social Inclusion Working Group of the Age Friendly London Network is working to reframe how older adults are portrayed and celebrate their contributions in our community. One of the ways the Group is doing this is through an “every day hero” campaign that will showcase older adults who help others in many small but meaningful ways. Older adults contribute so much to our families, neighbourhoods, and communities. If you know an older person who you would like to recognize as an “every day hero” , please contact Age Friendly London at agefriendlylondon@london. ca or 519-661-2489 x 7208.
