Age Action and the Irish Red Cross launch COVID-19 Hardship Fund for older people in Ireland experiencing additional hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Age Action has reconfigured it’s supports and services to ensure we stay connected to our members, partners and those who use our programmes.
Age Action's Care and Repair programme carries out minor repairs for older and vulnerable people free of charge, to give them access to reliable tradesmen for larger jobs and to provide a befriending service.
As part of our fight against digital exclusion, Age Action's Getting Started Computer Training programme delivers one-to-one training on computers, tablets and smartphones to people over the age of 55 all over Ireland
Are you concerned about elder abuse? We work hard to raise awareness about this issue and to help people affected.
We have trained information officers providing information over the phone, email and social media on issues facing older people.
U3A is a learning circle or cooperative. Members learn from one another by sharing knowledge and experiences and engaging in shared activities.
Our Advocacy team works hard to give a voice to older people, and ensure that their rights are always on the Government agenda.
