Age Friendly Programme
Age Friendly Ireland is the organisation responsible for the national Age Friendly Programme, affiliated to the World Health Organization’s [WHO] Global Network of Age Friendly Cities and Communities. The programme involves a multiagency, multi-sectoral approach to age-related planning and service provision.
Age Friendly Ireland operates as a shared service centre of local government hosted by Meath County Council. The shared service centre supports a network of 31 local Age Friendly Programmes which are led by local authorities.
Age Friendly Mayo is delivered by Mayo County Council and works to improve the services and facilities that our older people have identified as being important to them, and the wider community, as they live healthy and active lives.
Our projects, in conjunction with other organisations, include:
- Outdoor Spaces and Buildings
- Respect and Social Inclusion
- Social Participation
- Communication and Education
- Civic Participation and Employment
- Health and Wellbeing
The key contributors to this programme are the Age Friendly Alliance and Mayo Older Peoples Council.
Our Age Friendly Alliance brings together older people, service providers and businesses to change thinking about aging and how services to our older people are planned and delivered.
