Age Sector Networks


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

These 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 these networks to share information, best practice and learning on key issues to bring about positive change to older people’s services, policy and practice. See key contacts below for networks and key organisations in each Council area.
