STRATEGY 2016 – 2018

The Kildare Age Friendly County Alliance launched their 2016-2018 strategy on the 24th February 2016. The strategy was launched by Cllr. Brendan Weld, Mayor of Kildare, who was assisted by centenarian, Mr. Bernard Campbell, Rathcoffey, who had recently celebrated his 100th birthday.

After a thorough consultation process, the Kildare Age Friendly County Alliance, developed the Kildare Age Friendly County Strategy 2016 – 2018. Aims and objectives have been contributed by key service providers, following indicators from the World Health Organisation, with the overall aim of making Kildare a great place to grow old. This will be achieved by maximising collaboration, cohesion and cooperation within the county and beyond.

Communication and Information Plan

Ahead of the formulation of the 2016-2018 Kildare Age Friendly Strategy, consultations with older people and key stakeholders revealed that that communication should be prioritised as the most fundamental element. As a result, it was determined that a separate communication and information plan was required alongside a new strategy.

Increasing awareness of the Alliance’s work among the general public, particularly older people, who stand to benefit from projected outcomes, has become a critical target for the Alliance. The existence of an Age Friendly programme, as well as the work that has been fulfilled to date needs to be further promoted. The plan, linked below outlined the key messages, audience and techniques outlined in the plan which will ensure that outcomes are achieved.

It contains the contact details for a number of services and resources which will be useful in many situations, from daily to occasional. The booklet was included as a detachable section of the County Strategy and was also produced as a folding wallet information card.
