A unique opportunity to learn about the innovative products and services
 to enhance and secure our lives as we live longer

Within the Northeast region, Louth is seen as leading the way in developing a range of age-friendly initiatives and related new products and services. These developments are happening across the board with businesses, within communities and among the public services.

As we grow older our needs and aspirations change, so what range of products and services are available to help enhance the wonderful opportunity of living longer?

Following on from the success in previous years of the Age-Friendly Business Consumer Fair , we will once again seek to provide information on what products and services are available for older people.  Attendees will be able to

  • Learn how new innovate products can assist in the daily activities of living
  • Learn about services that are available to support you or a loved one in their own home and in the community
  • Listen to informative talks on matters that concern older people
  • Enjoy some fun and get fit with Carmel Dowdall’s Chairobics!
  • Learn about those businesses who offer products and services for older people, to assist them in living longer and healthier lives in the best possible way

As well as over 50 Age Friendly businessexhibitors, leading figures from caring and support services, technology, finance, fashion, law and many more will be on hand to give advice and provide valuable information..

The special guest on the day will be businessman Gavin Duffy, star of RTE Dragon’s Den and chairperson of the Louth Age Friendly Business Forum.

THE IRISH MARITIME FESTIVAL

Congratulations to the Irish Maritime Festival on how well they managed their volunteers to ensure the 30,000 people who attended the festival enjoyed the weekend.
Each year the Festival takes place in Drogheda from 19th - 21st June. Volunteer Louth referred 50 volunteers who applied to help out over the weekend. Feedback from the volunteers was overwhelmingly positive on their experience. Well done to both Karen's, Gary and Eddie!

Drogheda Chamber of Commerce asked local Business People to volunteer their time to mentor students. Students chose the charities to support and visited them to see the impact of their work.]

Half the profits from the student mini enterprises went to 3 local charities. Take a look at this 2 minute Video to view the programme.
