Age Friendly Ireland Business Recognition Programme

For the past few years, businesses all over Ireland have obtained their Age Friendly Charters as part of the Age Friendly Ireland Programme, and have proudly displayed their Age Friendly status on their shop window or in their reception area. They know that by doing this, they signal strongly that our older community is welcome, resulting in loyalty and increased custom.

Join the Business Recognition Programme

Examples of low cost and cost neutral ideas that businesses have developed include special offers for older people, the use of reading glasses, reduced noise levels, preferential seating and parking, staff trained in age friendly communications, larger fonts on printed material and many others.
