Age Friendly City Strategy
To achieve this status companies must first:
- Appoint an age-friendly champion within the company.
- Attend an age-friendly business training programme.
- Research through, liaising with customers or potential customers, what actions needed to be taken by the company to deliver on this promise.
- Agree 3 items that the organisation was committed to which would form part of their charter with customers to be displayed on their premises.
Speaking at the presentation Chris Dorgan, Programme Manager stated:
“We are delighted with the commitment these companies have given to the Age Friendly ethos. It makes perfect business sense given the spending power of this segment of the population as well as being socially conscious. Programmes like this need early innovators and we hope these companies will act as an incentive to more companies to make this commitment going forward.”
