‘We help our members grow through a variety of networking opportunities.’


Newry and Mourne will host its first Positive Aging Week from October 8-14. The week of organized local events for older people is to celebrate the positive aspects of growing old and to recognize the positive contribution older people make to our community. A number of statutory and voluntary bodies are involved in the facilitation and organization of this week of events through the creation of a steering group including the Council, the Southern Health and Social Care Trust, Volunteer Now, Newry and Mourne Senior Citizen’s Consortium and many more. Positive Aging Week is also being facilitated on a cross border basis by linking in with older people and services in Co Louth.
