We believe that, as we age, we can continue to learn, grow and develop in new ways.

Education & Training

Despite the conventional idea that learning is inseparably linked to formal education, it also happens in the power of lifelong learning and active citizenship. As we age, we can turn our knowledge into new understandings and new skills.

We believe that people who work directly with older people or whose work affects the lives of older people should be conscious of the needs, as well as the potential of their older clients.

If you have any questions about our education or staff training initiatives, please contact Fiona on 01 8057798 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Many organisations are becoming more aware of their older customers and clients. We continue to develop new workshops and courses and to create bespoke training and facilitation for organisations. We are happy to discuss and advise you on your needs.
