International Older People's Day

Post by Wirral Council News » Tue Oct 06, 2015 8:39 am

The achievements of older people in Wirral and the contribution they make to the community will be celebrated on 1 October for ‘Older People’s Day’ – an International Day created to recognise the importance of older people to society.Older People’s Day helps to support the campaign to challenge negative attitudes and outdated stereotypes about older people, showing how they make a vital contribution to society. In the UK, people aged 65-74 are the most likely to volunteer at least once a month, while around a third of those aged 75 and over volunteered at least once a year.Posted on 30 September 2015 - 10:37am
