senior-citizens-partyLaois launched it’s Age Friendly County Programme in April 2014. We started by asking older people all over the county what was important to them as they grew older. Following on from the ‘Showcase for the Over 55s’ held on Thursday, May 28th 2015 we would like to invite people to join the Older Persons’ Forum. The forum provides a structure for older people in Laois to come together, share concerns and experiences, and to inform the decision making process of the Programme.
Membership will be made up of representatives from the older persons’ groups in the county as well as individuals who are not affiliated to any recognised group. The forum exists to representing the views of older people and also takes responsibility for implementing many of the suggested changes identified through a recent consultation process with older people.
Application forms are available by contacting Geraldine Delaney, Community & Enterprise Section, Laois County Council, County Hall, Portlaoise as soon as possible.
