Age Action Ireland
Age Action Ireland


Age Action Ireland is the national independent Charity on ageing and older people. It acts as a network of organisations and individuals including older people and carers of older people. It is a development agency promoting better policies and services for older people in an ageing society.

Age Action's Getting Started programme delivers training on computers, the internet and mobile phones to people over the age of 55. In the last four years over 6,000 people have been trained in 12 counties by almost 1,000 volunteer tutors.

The training is on a one-to-one and classes take place in libraries, community centres, family resource centres, corporate offices, and housing complexes for older people.
