A number of government departments and offices have been involved, including those for education, health services, planning, social development, tourism, economic development, the environment, administration and finance, and sport. In the area of security the police have improved the situation for older people by monitoring neighbourhoods with a high risk of burglary.
Across society as a whole, a large number of different organisations are also playing a part in the age-friendly movement. Incentivized by a recognition program from the mayor and local government, businesses have also worked to improve respect and good treatment of older people, and improve accessibility to their goods and services, for example by improving signage with large letters and placing products in accessible places.
The Neighbourhood Councils Union allocates funds and logistic resources to the programme. The Red Cross promotes self-care among the older population, the Lions Club of Loncoche helps older adults with low incomes, and the Socio-Sanitary Network for Older Adults improve socio-sanitary centres for older people.
Additionally, the Catholic University of Temuco and various privately-owned educational institutions support the programme.
In the two years since joining the Global Network, a larger part of the population has become aware of the role that residents over 60 years old should have in society.
