Age Action Ireland

Age Action's vision is that Ireland becomes the best place in the world in which to grow older. Our mission is 'to achieve fundamental change in the lives of all older people by empowering them to live full lives as actively engaged citizens and to secure their rights to comprehensive high quality services according to their changing needs'. Age Action's Getting Started programme is a learning and awareness programme encouraging older people to use computers and Internet. Our goal is promoting digital inclusion and positive ageing by providing opportunities for older people to use computers, the Internet and mobile phones.
