To promote the positive aspects of ageing and to facilitate greater participation by older people in our community. Activities are link to, though not confined to, Positive Ageing Week, which is a national, annual event held in September/October.
We organise events in Thurles for, though not confined to, Positive Ageing Week. Membership includes representatives from many different organisations in Thurles.
A social inclusion strategy for Thurles was carried out in 2009. One of the key issues that arose is the level of participation in our society by older people. It was decided to form an Older Persons Working Group, made up of representatives from organisations and agencies with a remit in the provision of services to older people.
