We are Age & Opportunity, the national organisation that provides a range of opportunities for older people who want to get more involved in arts and culture, sport and physical activity, civic engagement and personal development. Our aim is to inspire people aged 50+ to live a dynamic life in which they are more active, more visible, more creative and more connected. 


One of our key priorities is to truly understand what ageing in Ireland means for people today by increasing the dialogue we have with them – conducting regular research through focus groups and workshops and by generating more opportunities for their feedback across all of our programmes. We work with local communities and organisations across the country to run a range of programmes and activities in three key areas: 


  • Age & Opportunity Arts provides opportunities for us to engage more in arts and cultural events and initiatives. 
  • Age & Opportunity Active is designed to get us more active and participate in recreational sport and physical activity. 
  • Age & Opportunity Engage offers a range of workshops and learning initiatives for our own personal development as well as opportunities for us to play an active role in our community.

Age & Opportunity is the leading national development organisation improving the quality of life of people aged 50 – 100+. We do this by:
  • Championing the creativity and value of older people;
  • Combating stereotypes and negative views of ageing;
  • Developing inclusive and engaging experiences which respond to the interests and needs of the diverse older adult population;
  • Developing, testing and measuring the impact of pioneering programmes and approaches;
  • Making evidence available to policy-makers and service providers;
  • Working with partners and stakeholders to ensure that Ireland’s policies, strategies and programmes are directly informed by the needs and experiences of older people.
We work with a multitude of public and private partners such as government departments, local authorities, health services, universities, community groups, arts and culture organisations and local sports groups to provide opportunities for older people to be more active; more visible; more creative; more connected; more often.

2018 marked our 30th anniversary as an organisation

In 1988 Age & Opportunity was founded in response to the need of more positive attitudes towards older people and ageing. Today, we continue to innovate and establish ourselves as a leading thinker on ageing in Ireland, challenging key issues to encourage positive change and wellbeing as we get older.
