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. To see the material we used to highlight the many services we provide to people like Annie click here for Direct Debit Letter (PDF, size 73.6 KB) and click here for the direct debit mandate form (PDF, size 182 KB).

If you would like any further information or do not have a printer and would prefer a hard copy by post, please tell us and we will be happy to send one out to you.

Age Action Welcomes the launch of the Housing Options for our Ageing Population Policy Statement

Responding to today’s launch of the Housing Options for our Ageing Population Policy Statement, Paddy Connolly, CEO of Age Action, Ireland’s leading advocacy organisation  said;

“This is a welcome joint initiative by the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government and the Department of Health because it begins to address the needs of our ageing population in terms of ageing in place.  The commitment to provide real choice to people through a catalogue of housing with supports is welcome, especially the recognition that an ageing population has diverse needs.”

He continued “Age Action believes that we should have a choice to age in place which means the creation of age friendly environments, including the provision of support services locally, which enable people to remain in their own homes and in communities for longer. The wider support needs of people as we age was to be addressed through the National Positive Ageing Strategy which was published in 2013 and is yet to be implemented.”

You might be due a tax refund

 

 

Revenue wants to make sure that everyone knows about the tax credits, reliefs and exemptions they are entitled to. Revenue wrote to some people recently telling them that they might be entitled to a tax refund going back as far as 2014.
If you think that you might also be due a tax refund for the year 2014, you need to submit a claim to Revenue before midnight on 31 December 2018. If you don’t want to miss out, submit your claim to Revenue before then.
