Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council is an Age Friendly County; and has a very active older age population.
Since 2007 the dlrcoco/HSE Arts and Health Partnership Programme has collaborated with older people as well as those with disabilities and mental health conditions and illness within health services and the wider community. It offers participants new opportunities to explore their own creatively and address needs that they have identified as most important to them. We have supported numerous Dance, Music, Visual Art, Architecture and muc more besides over the years!
The main objective of this cross-sector partnership is to make creativity intrinsic to life within the community. Promoting and enhancing quality of life, health and wellbeing for all persons taking part. The programme also creates greater awareness among the general population about ageing and disabilities
