Age Action, Ireland
Age Action is Ireland's leading charity working to improve the quality of life of all older people and their carers.
The aim is to achieve fundamental changes in the lives of all older people by empowering them to live full lives as actively engaged citizens. Age Action promotes positive ageing, and better policies and services for older people.
To provide the best quality of life for older people in Ireland, the organisation supports older people to secure their rights, represent their interests and obtain the services they need.
Age Action became a HelpAge Affiliate in 2004. In 2009 it appointed a global educator to promote awareness of ageing in developing countries within Ireland, and works closely with HelpAge and Irish Aid on the development of this programme.
Age Action Ireland participates in the annual campaign Age Demands Action.
