Age-Friendly Business Recognition Programme - Seminar

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown county has a higher than average proportion of people aged over 65, with 16% of the population (almost 35,000 people) in that age bracket.

Older people account for up to 50% of consumer spending. Are you doing everything you can to capture and retain this powerful customer base?


Your business should be Age-Friendly because:

  •  It is simple to achieve
  •  It is low cost or cost neutral
  •  It opens up new business for you
  •  It is the right thing to do!


What is involved?

In four simple steps you can become an Age-Friendly Business:

  1. Plan: Identify a member of staff to act as a champion for age friendliness and older customers
  2. Act: the champion attends our seminar and starts to develop ideas for your business
  3. Consult: Ask your older customers what they like, what could be improved
  4. Implement: Develop and implement 3 actions, receive your Charter and get recognised as an Age-Friendly Business


Examples of low cost and cost neutral ideas that businesses have developed include:

  • special offers for older people
  • the use of reading glasses
  • reduced noise levels
  • preferential seating and parking
  • larger fonts on printed materials and
  • better lighting.
