About Ageing Well Reach

Ageing Well Reach was delivered using the Ageing Well Model of Practice. This model was developed over a fifteen year period by Age Concern Northern Ireland (now Age NI) in association with the Health Promotion Agency Northern Ireland as a response to the ageing population and to the changing attitudes to health and ageing that have occurred over this time.  The model combined the practical delivery of health and wellbeing programmes by locally based older people’s groups alongside a strong emphasis on capacity building, leadership training and quality assurance. 

The Ageing Well Reach project allowed further development of the model by extending its application beyond physical activity programmes to include programmes that promoted good mental health and good diet and nutrition.  It also applied the model for the first time to harder to reach older people’s groups; these included groups new to taking part in health and wellbeing programmes, groups located in areas of high socio-economic deprivation, groups supporting older people living in isolated rural areas, groups supporting older men to become healthier and more active and groups supporting older people from black or ethnic minority groups,  older people with physical or learning disability and older people with mental health problems.
