Age Action and Gas Networks Ireland

Founded in 1992, Age Action is Ireland’s leading advocacy organisation working for human rights and equality for all of us as we age. Our vision is a world where older people can live full lives as actively engaged citizens, and to secure their right to comprehensive, high-quality services according to their changing needs. The Gas Networks Ireland partnership with Age Action is multifaceted. Gas Networks Ireland helps advance Age Action’s goals of Lifelong Learning and Ageing in Place. 
 
In Age Action’s Lifelong Learning area, Gas Netowrks Ireland staff volunteer in the Getting Started digital literacy programme, which helps improve digital literacy rates for older people. 50% of over 75’s have never been online, and 25% of over 55’s have never been online. Our work in this area keeps older people connected to their friends, families, and loved ones. 
 
In Age Action’s Ageing in Place area, Gas Networks Ireland staff help older people to maintain choice and control in their own lives. Staff volunteer for the Care & Repair programme, which provides DIY work and small repairs to ensure older people can age at home for longer in safety and comfort. For several years, Gas Networks Ireland has spearheaded an initiative to install carbon monoxide alarms in older people’s homes as well. 
 
Gas Networks Ireland staff also engage in fundraising activities for Age Action, helping them provide high-quality services and advocacy. Additionally, for every Customer Satisfaction survey completed, Gas Networks Ireland donates €2 to Age Action!
