The Active Ageing Strategy 2014 – 2020 consultation document was published for public consultation on 21 February 2014. You can access the Active Ageing Strategy Consultation Analysis report on this page.
This followed a period during which OFMDFM officials worked closely with the Ageing Strategy Advisory Group and then produced the Active Ageing Strategy, the title of which emphasises the key mechanism, active ageing, which can maximise the quality of life of people as they get older and can minimise they may face. The new Strategy highlights the very positive role that older people play in society and identifies the key issues facing older people which form barriers to active ageing.
The consultation period ended on 23 May 2014. This report provides an overview of the consultation process and highlights key comments which were raised in relation to the proposals outlined in the draft Active Ageing Strategy.
