Positive Ageing Month – October 202101/10/2021
Fermanagh and Omagh District Council and lead partners, Derry City and Strabane District Council, Western Trust, Public Health Agency and South West Age Partnership are working together to promote Positive Ageing Month throughout the Fermanagh, Omagh, Derry/Londonderry and Strabane areas during the month of October.
Launching the campaign, Seamus Ward, Head of Health Improvement, Western Trust said:
“I am delighted to be launching this year’s Positive Ageing campaign. It is a great opportunity to showcase the fantastic work being carried out on the ground by older people’s groups and community and voluntary organisations. The programme of events that we have produced shows a variety of activities that exist throughout Derry-Londonderry, Strabane and Limavady areas for older citizens. In an ageing population, it is important we continue to work together to encourage older people to reach out and help them re-connect within their local community, not only to reduce social isolation and loneliness but to help them live long, healthy lives. We also must not forget the valuable contribution older people make within our local communities.”
