Charter for an Age-Friendly Community
The production of this Charter is a key step to insuring that Causeway Coast and Glens is a designated Age Friendly Community. The visions detailed in this document derive from the opinions and thoughts of older people in this area but also aligns with the strategic aims of the World Health Organization, the Northern Ireland Executive’s Active Ageing Strategy, Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Community Plan and the United Nations Principles for Older Persons.
The publication of this Charter outlines the pathway for the creation of a sustainable Age Friendly Community. It outlines the opportunity to improve the lives of older people in this area through collaborative working and placing older people at the heart of all aspects of our society. The Charter details how our communities can be improved by being truly inclusive and recognising the valuable resource that older people can be in our area.
