Each Local Authority Age Friendly Programme is coordinated by the Age Friendly Programme Manager who plays a fundamental role in the implementation of the age friendly programme across Ireland. They work with their local Alliance to develop and implement an Age Friendly Strategy and Action Plans.

The Programme Manager adopts initiatives that respond to priorities raised at local level and supports the scaling up and replication of good practices across all participating age friendly programme areas. They support the local Older People’s Council and are the primary contact for same. Technical guidance is given to Programme Managers on a day to day basis through the shared service programme office and onsite visits by the National Programme Manager to support specific objectives where required.

Across the network of 31 Age Friendly Programmes a strong cohesive network has developed underpinned by the role & functions of the Programme Managers. This network ensures that there is consistency in application and critical success factors are preserved in implementation.
