Age & Opportunity is the national organisation that inspires everyone to reach their full potential as they age.

Our goal is to turn the period from age 50 onwards into one of the most satisfying times in people’s lives, by facilitating:

  • opportunities to engage in arts and cultural activities
  • opportunities for sport and physical activity
  • opportunities to learn and be involved as active citizens

We work with public and private partners to deliver established innovative programmes like the Bealtaine arts festival, and Go for Life – the national sports programme for older people. We are also developing a series of exciting positive ageing programmes.

Our major partners include the HSE, Sport Ireland and the Arts Council.

People are now living for longer. Age & Opportunity works to provide opportunities to encourage people to live their longer lives to the full. We are continually finding new ways to engage, to motivate and to support people in this adventure. Join in.
