Volunteer on One of Our Programmes
Are you good at DIY? Do you have time to visit an older person for a chat and a cuppa? If so why not volunteer on our Care & Repair programme - a light handyman and home visitation service for older people - 22,000 jobs were completed in 2013.
Do you enjoy surfing the net and sending emails and text messages? Then why not teach an older person these skills through our Getting Started computer and mobile phone training programme - 20,000 older people have been trained to date.
Donate Clothes or Goods
Spring clean your home and organise a staff donation day where staff bring in unwanted clothes or bric-a-brac, books and household wares. Our collection service will organise collection of goods on a pre-arranged date.
Are you a follower of fashion? Do you have an interest in vintage clothing and furniture? Why not help out in one of three Age Action Charity Shops in Dublin city centre, Dun Laoghaire and Monaghan.
Organise an Employee Fundraising Event
Organise a staff team building social event for Age Action and we will provide promotional material such as posters, collection boxes and sponsorship cards. Event ideas could include a:
- Sponsored walk or run
- Coffee morning
- Pub quiz
- Race night
- Participate in one of many Age Action fundraising events
Borrow an Age Action Positive Ageing Photography Exhibition
This inspirational exhibition contains 30 wonderful photos and stories of older people still working, enjoying hobbies, hill walking, marathon running, graduating and enjoying life with family and friends. The exhibition could be displayed at a fundraising event such as a Coffee Morning / Clothes and Goods Donation event.
