Positive Ageing Month

A demographic revolution is underway throughout the world. Today, there are around 600 million persons aged 60 years and over world-wide. This number will double by 2025 and will reach two billion by 2050, with the vast majority of older persons living in the developing world (WHO). In the South Eastern Trust area there are approximately 64,000 people aged 65+ and by 2025 this will have increased to approximately 80,000, representing a large proportion of our society.

The South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust together with our partners and affiliates wish to commemorate this month and recognize and celebrate the achievements and contributions that older people make to our society by compiling a fun and exciting programme of activities and events.
