Regular Giving

One of the greatest challenges we are facing at the moment is the uncertainty of our funding sources. We have been hit by reduced grants for our services and need to find alternative and new ways of funding to enable us to continue to help and support older people around the country. We need to develop new income streams and more importantly sustainable income for the future.

One new way is the introduction of the direct mail campaign. We are hoping to recruit new donors and supporters by asking them to make a regular monthly donation.

A Fair Society for All? Listening to the Voices of Older People

Often, inequalities experienced by older people reflect an accumulated disadvantage which can be as a result of factors such as socio-economic status, health, gender, location. How existing inequalities impact on us as we age is something we in Age Action explored through a panel discussion 10 September – A Fair Society For All? Listening to the Voice of Older People – in Croke Park, on the occasion of the Annual General Meeting 2019.

An audience of over 160 people, including members of Age Action and people working in the ageing sector, joined the conversatoin which included a panel disucssion moderated by the CEO Paddy Connolly. The discussion centred on a discussion paper, Equality for All - Older People for Equality, published by Age Action in advance.The  panel set the scene with inputs from Michael Taft, Economist and political economy columnist, Colette Bennett, Policy Analyst Social Justice Ireland, Deirdre Garvey, CEO The Wheel, Ailbhe Smith, Co-Director of Together for Yes.
