A new discount card has been launched for people over 50 called Be Respected! The initiative is managed by Belfast City Centre Management (BCCM) and supported by Age NI.
The card enables people over 50 to access discounts in a range of stores in Belfast City Centre including Specsavers, Holland & Barratt and Le Creuset. Find out more about the scheme and the range of discounts on offer at www.berespectedcard.co.uk. The initiative is open to people from any part of Northern Ireland who visit Belfast for their shopping needs.
Cards are priced at £10 per annum and application forms are available below. BBCM will donate £2 for every card purchased to Age NI to help us continue our vital work for older people in Northern Ireland.
Age NI believes the Be Respected initiative is a positive step for Belfast in terms of increasing choice for older people, and encouraging greater participation in society.
Older people have a vital role to play in our society in so many ways; as workers, volunteers and carers to name a few. However, almost half of older people tell us that they are ‘aware of instances where they have been treated with less dignity and respect when accessing services because of their age’.
An initiative like Be Respected, supported by so many Belfast city centre retailers, offers significant added value for people in later life and recognises the contribution older people make to our local economy.
If you would like more information about the scheme or have any further questions, contact Belfast City Centre Management on 028 9024 2111, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.berespectedcard.co.uk
