Every entry makes a difference!
We want to offer you a final opportunity to assist in and support our work this year (and be in the drawing for a chance of winning a top prize!) by taking part in our Winter Warm Raffle.
Your support this Christmas is important to our continued work. Every donation from our Winter Warmer Raffle will go straight to our vital advocacy, programmes, and services, including Getting Started digital literacy programme, Information Service, and Care & Repair programme.
The closing date for the raffle is Wednesday, 15th December, with the draw taking place on the 16th, so there is no time to waste!
Thank you once again for your ongoing support, the very best of luck with your raffle entry, and please accept my very best wishes to you and yours for Christmas and the New Year!
Our Mission is:
‘To achieve fundamental change in the lives of all older people by empowering them to live full lives as actively engaged citizens and to secure their rights to comprehensive high quality services according to their changing needs’.
Our mission statement reflects our commitment to ensuring that our work is aimed at mobilising and supporting older people.
- We will mobilise and empower older people to advocate on behalf of themselves, their families and their communities as a key element of our advocacy work. As part of this work we will also challenge attitudes towards ageing and older people.
- We will continue to promote the adoption of a life course approach which recognises ageing as a lifelong process. We will particularly focus on highlighting the needs of the most disadvantaged of older people.
- This work will be informed by best international practice and will raise awareness of the needs of older people in developing countries, promoting global policies to protect and support older people.
- Our services and programmes will support older people and their families to live full and independent lives and we will endeavour to ensure these services and supports are models of good practice.
