Improving the lives of older people
Published: Tue, 25 Feb 2014
A community conversation aimed at developing ‘good neighbourhoods for ageing well’ is taking place in the Craigavon Civic Centre on Thursday 27 February.
Representatives from our local offices in Portadown, Lurgan and Craigavon will be on hand to lend an ear and take part in the conversation which starts at 9.30am and end around 2pm.
They will be happy to take questions on housing benefit, rates relief, grant opportunities and applying for social housing.
The conversations have been initiated by the Southern Strategic Health Improvement Partnership (SSHIP), funded by the Public Health Agency (PHA) and coordinated by the council. They aim to seek the views of those aged over 65 years, carers of older people, community organisations and local residents who support older people to help develop a local area action plans, focussing on older people, to improve neighbourhoods and their age-friendliness.
