Older People

We have a group of older people who meet every Tuesday for a coffee morning to discuss the needs and concerns of the elderly in relation to benefit entitlement, housing issues, mental health issues, healthy living and community safety. The group are now affiliated to Age Concern Northern Ireland’s Ageing Well Network and are represented on the West Belfast 50+ Forum and the Pensioners Parliament. This group is open to new members and is now a self sustaining group called the Young at Hearts.

We have just completed an inter-generational mural between older residents and young residents which is now located on Beechmount Avenue.
