The Carlow Older Persons Forum goes from strength to strength and is engaging in a number of initiatives this year to heighten awareness of the needs of older members of the community as they access important daily services. We are particularly happy to note the development of a key strategic  partnership with the Bank of Ireland  in this work this year. The bank branch at Shamrock Plaza organized a lovely Bake Sale on Friday May 19th, with all proceeds going to the Forum. We are happy to report that over 700 Euros was made. A special thanks goes out to all who baked the wonderful array of treats including members of our own Carlow County Development Partnership staff, and to Derek the Bank Manager who facilitated the whole event.

CCDP works with individuals and community who aim to improve the lives of their community or their group. Older persons have a significant contribution to make their the Carlow community and the Older Persons Forum aims to make their voice heard  by service providers and organizations.
