Age & Opportunity is the national organisation that works to inspire and to create opportunities so that we can live healthy and fulfilling lives as we age.
We do this by working with other national and local bodies to provide access to a wide range of activities, events and training opportunities in:
• arts and culture
• sport and physical activity, and
• education and active citizenship.
Age & Opportunity aims to contribute to changes in attitudes and practices in relation to ageing and older people in Ireland such that as people age they can develop their full potential on three levels – the personal, the societal and the civic – to the extent that each individual chooses. This is informed by international public policy initiatives as well as research showing that participating in society is good for individual health and well-being, and good for communities through the building of social capital. Fundamentally it is also informed by the conviction that full citizenship is the right of everyone no matter what their age or background.
