The award is free to enter and is open to all tourism businesses that considered the needs of older visitors and go out of their way to offer a really positive tourism experience for those in later life.    

Phil Dolan, Chief Executive of Age UK Somerset, says “Age UK Somerset is an independent local charity, the largest charity working with and for older people in Somerset and North Somerset.  With our local population increasing in age, our role to promote the wellbeing and independence of older people and add value to later life, is more important now than ever and with the wide variety of services we offer to make later life better, we put the needs of older people at the heart of what we do.  By sponsoring this special award we want to recognise and celebrate the local tourism businesses that are taking the same approach.”

The deadline has passed for many categories but for this special award it has been extended until 22nd August 2018.  Winners and runners up will be invited to the Award ceremony which takes place in Bath at the Apex Hotel on November 15th.
