The aim of Get Vocal was to strengthen the voices of older people in Ireland by increasing their capacity to make themselves heard. It supported groups and networks to develop ways of speaking out on the issues that matter to them and to spark initiatives that help society to understand their needs and their problems, as well as their hopes. To speak out effectively, groups and networks have built up their ability to advocate on behalf of older people.
Creative Exchanges is a course for anyone leading creative activities with older people in care settings.
