Bi-annual Convening of the Age Friendly Alliance Chairs
The Chairs of the Age Friendly Alliances across the country came together in January this year to advise on the Programme’s long term ambitions. They met again on the 2nd
July in Dublin where there was an excellent turnout from 20 of the Alliances which is reflective of the rapid growth of the Programme over the first six months of 2014.
The bi-annual meetings are designed to allow for the sharing of best practice around the roll out of the Programme and related project development. The meetings offer an opportunity to collectively problem solve roadblocks to the programme’s progression. These convenings allow for more experienced chairs to share their experiences of supporting the development of the Programme on the ground with chairs who are relative new comers to the Programme. The next meeting is due to take place in January of 2015.
