There are more people in Northern Ireland aged 55+ than 18 and under. As we grow older we face new challenges, and possibly concerns like illness, poverty or ill health. But that doesn’t stop us being ourselves.

We still want to laugh, love and be needed. We want to stay independent and keep doing the things we love. We all want a fulfilling later life.

That’s why Age NI is here. To support those who need us, to stand up for all those who have reached later life, and protect the long-term interests of future generations. We believe that living longer should be celebrated.

Our vision is a world where everyone can love later life. Just like the wonderful local faces in our personal stories below.
