  • Review of Age Friendly Counties Programme

    The purpose of this evaluation was to explore the overall effectiveness of the Age Friendly Counties (AFC) Programme and its impact on the quality of life of older people; assess what has worked (and where), what has not and what can be done to improve effectiveness and engagement over the longer term; and seek answers how to best address the key challenges of the Programme.

  • Age Friendly Initiatives

    These vibrant and innovative projects provide proof that becoming Age Friendly really does make a difference to the lives of people in the villages, towns and cities across Ireland. In the following pages you will find information on a selection of projects, groups and partnerships that all fall under the Age Friendly banner and are making a real difference in the lives of older people in cities and counties across Ireland.

    These projects are grouped under nine key headings or Age Friendly Outcomes. Having heard the voices of thousands of older people to date, we have developed these outcomes based on what these older voices have told us matters most to them. In every city and county, the AFCC Programme strives to deliver change under each of these outcomes.
