Ireland – The World’s First Age Friendly Country!

On the 17th April 2019 Ireland became the first Country in the world to become fully affiliated with the World Health Organisation’s Global Network of Age Friendly Cities & Communities. Each of the 31 Local Government led programmes have an Age Friendly strategy and are committed to ensuring that they are more inclusive and supportive of older people as they age by addressing their expressed concerns across a range of interrelated domain areas. Using a whole of Government approach our aim is to make Ireland a great place in which to grow old.
