An Age Friendly Society


National Council on Ageing and Older People, 2005

Type: Report
Region: Northern Ireland

The primary function of the National Council on Ageing and Older People (NCAOP) is to develop a comprehensive understanding of ageing and the older population in Ireland, with a view to providing the best possible advice to the Minister for Health and Children, and all who are concerned with the welfare of older people in Ireland.  In that context, the Council articulates the needs and concerns of older Irish people and makes evidence-based recommendations on what actions should be taken to remedy problems encountered by them. In particular, the Council works to promote the health and social inclusion of older people; advises on ways to meet the needs of the most vulnerable among the older population; and on means of encouraging positive attitudes to life after the age of 65. The Council also works towards the achievement of greater coordination between public bodies at national and local levels in the planning and provision of services for older people.
