Age and Opportunity

Age & Opportunity is the national not-for-profit organisation that promotes opportunities for greater participation by older people in society through partnerships and collaborative programmes.

Age & Opportunity’s vision is an Ireland where all older people have the opportunity to realise their full potential and participate in an inclusive society.

We promote creativity, participation, confidence and engagement among older people. Age & Opportunity works with partners to create opportunities to learn, to take part and to make a difference.

As people who are ageing, we have much to contribute and to share. Our practical programmes have grown from different ways of cultivating involvement by people who are 50 and older. Some tap into latent skills, talents and abilities. Others tackle attitudes to ageing and discrimination which hold people back from taking part in full.

As a not-for-profit organisation, we work in a developmental way with public and private organisations to deliver practical programmes like the Bealtaine festival, Go for Life sports and activity programme, Ageing with Confidence courses and the anti-ageism AgeWise workshop. Some of our major partners include the Health Service Executive, the Arts Council and the Irish Sports Council.
