Sinn Féin Foyle MLA Maeve McLaughlin has welcomed the launch of the Executive’s Active Aging Strategy.
“I welcome the announcement of the launch of the Executive’s Active Aging Strategy . And I acknowledge the sterling contribution by the Active Ageing Strategy Advisory Group headed up by the Commissioner for older People.
“Older people are a very important section of our society who seldom receive recognition for the contribution they have made to their communities.
“They deserve to be supported in every conceivable way in order that they can live as active and independent a life as possible for as long as they can.
“Older people have a continuing valuable contribution to make in regards to family cohesion and enrich the social fabric with their experience and knowledge.
“I look forward to seeing the roll out of this ambitious strategy in the coming period.”
