Laterlife Network AGM

Meath Laterlife Network will hold their AGM on Wednesday, June 26th from 11am to 1pm in the Ardboyne Hotel, Navan.

Everyone is welcome to attend for a morning of information and interaction for people who are aged 55 and over living in County Meath.

Attendance is free and there will be light refreshments provided.

Places are limited so booking is essential, to book contact Natasha on 046 9280790 for more information or email to book your place.

The Laterlife Network was formed after a need for an over 55s network became apparent in Meath when a study revealed there were over 600 older people living in the county in 2011.

The 'Shaping The Future' report found a need for a county-wide structure to facilitate interaction, dialogue and connections between agencies, service providers and older people in the county.

There was great support for the establishment of the Network by all service providers in Meath, in particular Meath County Council and the Age Friendly County Initiative and in early 2012 Meath Partnership secured LEADER funding to support the establishment and growth of the Network.

The first meeting took place in July 2012 and since then the network has gone from strength to strength.
