Louth Volunteer Centre are hosting an session in line with the week’s theme “Challenging Ageism -Reframing How We Think, Feel and Act towards ageing and older persons” in Drogheda Library on Monday 26th  September at 2pm.

The session will specifically look at how volunteering can benefit older people – not in the context of volunteering to help them, but rather as volunteers themselves. Often, when we hear ‘older people’ and ‘volunteering’ in the same sentence, we might think about charitable organisations such as ALONE that work to help older people and combat ageism in our society. However, older adults are an absolutely invaluable part of the volunteering ecosystem themselves.
