On September 9, 2011, we became the first County in the Dublin Region to go Age Friendly. Our programme is led by the Fingal Alliance and we have also established a local Older People’s Council which represents the views of older people within the Alliance.

Two important Age Friendly Documents Launched

Mayor of Fingal, Councillor Anthony Lavin in the company of Minister Damien English T.D. launched two important documents as part of Fingal County Council’s Age Friendly initiative in The Atrium, Fingal County Council, Swords on Monday March 25th 2019. The report The Provision of Accommodation for older people in Fingal Engaging with the Private Sector  and its accompanying information leaflet 10 Ways to Construct a More Lifetime Adaptable and Age Friendly Home”   are important additions to the work of Fingal County Council in enhancing their approach to the provision of life cycle adaptable and age appropriate housing across the County at construction stage.

The Fingal Age Friendly Guide is being brought to you through our #Keep Well Campaign.  You will find a wide range of information on the services, supports and activities which aim to support our mental health and wellbeing over the coming year.

Our Age Friendly Fingal Guide 2021 is being delivered across the county to members of our older population over the next week, I hope you enjoy. Read it online here.
