InformationShop Front Improvement, Accessibility and Age Friendly Grant Scheme to financially assist and support

Kildare County Council has established the Shop Front Improvement, Accessibility and Age Friendly Grant Scheme to financially assist and support independent business owners to improve the appearance of their shop fronts/ commercial properties.

This funding is being provided in recognition of the fact that a building’s facade makes a big impact on our town centres. They help form people’s first impressions of a town centre, so their condition can really affect a town’s image. Smart shop fronts will make a town feel more prosperous, improve its image and contribute towards a stronger sense of identity.

INFORMATION EVENING
Retail Improvements: Shop Front Improvement, Accessibility and Age Friendly Grant Scheme
Thursday 12th March 2020
Bradbury's Athy,
6.30pm - 7.30pm



We are now emphasising the need to incorporate elements to improve Accessibility and Age Friendly to grant applications, as can be seen on the breakdown of award values on the attached application form.

On a separate note, we are currently working in conjunction with Age Friendly Ireland to develop an Age Friendly Business Recognition Programme with a view to promoting Kildare as an Age Friendly County. We are initially rolling this scheme out in Athy to present it as the first Age Friendly Town in the County.

We are scheduled to attend training at the end of March and will then be in a position to deliver this training to retailers in Athy that are interested in becoming Age Friendly certified. This will most definitely be beneficial to their business.

We will notify you once we are ready to roll out the programme which we hope will prove to be very successful and as such would welcome your support
