The 2011 Census reported 16.1% of Carlow’s population to be over the age of 60.

Reflecting the demographic change, the Government made a commitment to prepare a National Positive Ageing Strategy to better recognise the position of older people in Irish Society.

Strategy and Action Plan

The age friendly plan of action has been developed as a result of consultation with the older people of Carlow and with the agencies and service providers involved in the delivery of services to older adults throughout the County. Having listened to the views, thoughts and opinions of all and by researching models of good practice in creating age friendly environments we have developed Carlow’s Age Friendly County Strategy.

Our Vision

Carlow through its involvement in the Age Friendly County Initiative will lead the way, showing how people of all ages benefit when communities are designed to be age friendly and where older people live life to their greatest potential.

  1. County Carlow will be a great place to grow old in, enjoyed and appreciated by everyone.
  2. Carlow will be a county that enables its people to age with security, dignity and the capacity to participate as citizens to their fullest potential.
