Starting an Older People's Local Community Group


Co Wexford Age Equality Network are in the process of developing a model of group mentoring.

This will involve peer groups supporting interested individuals in a local area to start-up a new group or re-invigorate an existing organisation. This process will focus on pre-development and building the capacity of the new group.

Ongoing information and community education supports are available through the Get Vocal programme and through the Network, with advice on small-scale funding, community organising, group insurance, leadership, engaging with policy and access to services.

By being part of Co Wexford Age Equality Network, a new local group will be able to tap into a wealth of experience, knowledge and peer support, that can make all the difference to the quality of life of older people in a local area and also the opportunity to be part of a strong movement of older people within the county.
