Age Friendly

Age Friendly Strategy

On Wednesday, 20 July 2022 Cavan County Council’s Cavan Age Friendly Programme launched the Cavan Age Friendly Strategy 2022 – 2024.

In launching the strategy, Cathaoirleach of Cavan County Council, Cllr John Paul Feeley was joined by Cavan County Council’s Chief Executive and Chair of Cavan Age Friendly Alliance, Tommy Ryan, Chair of Cavan Older People’s Council and Cavan Age Friendly Ambassador, Bob Gilbert, and members of Cavan Age Friendly Alliance, Cavan Older People’s Council, and Elected Members of Cavan County Council.

This is the third Cavan Age Friendly Strategy, which will build on the significant progress made to date in making Cavan an age friendly county; a county where older people lead healthy and active lives, and where they are given opportunities to participate fully in community life while being valued and respected by others.

The strategy contains actions that are specific and targeted towards addressing needs identified in consultation with older people and the achievement of these actions will ultimately bring about changes required to make the physical, social and cultural environments of our county age friendly. 

The strategy covers 8 specific themes to benefit older people:

  • Outdoor Spaces and Public Buildings
  • Transportation
  • Housing
  • Respect and Social Inclusion
  • Social Participation
  • Communication and information
  • Civic Participation and Employment
  • Community Support and Health Services

Information for Older People

The Cavan Age Friendly Programme has prepared an 'Information Guide to Services for Older People in County Cavan'.

The Information Guide provides clear information on Council services, such as housing grants, water grants, Sports Partnership supports and planning information.

We also worked with the County Cavan Citizens' Information Service to include additional information relevant to older people, such as pension entitlements and other grants.
