MAKING OFFALY AN "AGE-FRIENDLY" COUNTY

The overarching goal of Ireland’s Age Friendly Cities and Counties Programme is that every local authority area in Ireland will be a great place in which to grow old. Underpinning the AFCC Programme is the core principle that older people are a most valuable resource to their communities and to our society in general. For this reason, the voice of the older person is at the very heart of the Programme. 
Locally, the Offaly Public Participation Network has already begun the process of ensuring that Offaly will be an age friendly county. Public participation in the process is essential to make it a success. <<Read More>>
