Why should a business have an Age Friendly Approach?

  • Older people own 75% of the wealth in the EU and account for 50% of consumer spending
  • Older customers (65+) in Ireland have a revenue-declared annual income of over €6.5 billion
  • Older consumers will double in number in the next 30 years, and those over 80 will quadruple
  • Older customers not only spend locally and have a lot of purchasing power, but also have the time to shop 50% of all toys are bought by grandparents
  • Over 50’s take on average almost three trips a year in Ireland, staying three nights away

Getting involved is a 4 Stage Process!

  2. The champion participates in our Age Friendly Business Workshop and starts to develop ideas.
  3. Ask your older customers what they like and what could be improved?
  4. Develop actions and get recognised as an Age Friendly Business!
