Age Sector Networks


Age NI has helped build an infrastructure of independent age sector networks across Northern Ireland. 

Networks bring together local age sector groups to strengthen the voice of older people and support them to influence decisions on local policy and services. Age NI supports networks to share information, learning and progress on key issues to bring about positive change to services, policy and practice.
