The Regional Councils of Active Retirement Ireland
National Executive Committee 2007
As you the Delegates from our 457 Active Retirement Associations meet for the 22nd annual general meeting of Active Retirement Ireland I am privileged to welcome you all as your President. I also welcome past Presidents and the National and Regional Officers and Committee Members who will be with us at this AGM. During their terms of office they have worked tirelessly to raise the profile and promote the status of older people. I thank Salthill Active Retirement Association for their organisational input into this AGM in their native city of Galway. On their behalf, I welcome you to Galway and trust you will have a pleasant stay, and will return many times in the future. We greet the many artists in our organisation whose works are exhibited as part of our AGM. Our National Art Exhibition is now establishing itself as an annual event. Please take time out to visit the art exhibition. As in 2007 the hosting of this AGM and Health Promotion Events has been made possible through the support of an educational grant from Pfizer Healthcare. Grateful thanks are also extended to the Galway City Council Arts Officer also Galway Irish Crystal and Royal Tara Fine Bone China for their support in respect of the National Art Exhibition. It is with regret we see the departure of our CEO Brian Judd who resigned on the 31st January 2008. Brian has been with us for almost six years - a period which has experienced huge growth in affiliated groups and total membership. On behalf of the National Executive and all our affiliated associations we wish Brian well for the future. Our Southern Regional Development Officer, Betty Smith also retired from her position on the 31st December 2007. Well done Betty for your work. Delegates, as we gather here at this AGM to discuss the future of Active Retirement Ireland lets reflect on a short ditty given to me by the late Jim Ross of the Irish Senior Citizens Parliament which Jim called “Confidence”. There is no better time to say Just what you think it is today Tomorrow, is a might have been Yesterday, a slate wiped clean. You live and breathe and think today NOW’s the time to have your say Do not fear the tone you use Or speak in words that may confuse. Thank you, the members of The National Executive, Brian Judd CEO and Helen Boran Administration Secretary for being so helpful to me during the year. I want also to thank and acknowledge the dedication, encouragement and hard work of our Development Officers – Kathleen Kumnig, Mary Tyrell, Betty Smith, Seamus Walsh, Seamus O’Shea, Larry Carey, Gerry Butler and Aidan O’Byrne. Progress in active retirement has been made in many areas, as detailed in this annual report. It is a privilege to serve as your National President.
2 Active Retirement
Report for 2007 from the National Executive Committee of Active Retirement Ireland
Active Retirement Ireland (formerly The Federation of Active Retirement Associations) is holding its 22nd Annual General Meeting this year in Salthill, Galway on the 16th of April 2008. When the Active Retirement movement started in Dunlaoghaire in 1978 it is unlikely its Founders could have envisaged the national organisation that is in existence today. What still remains constant; however, are the aims of the Active Retirement movement: 1. To promote the status of older people, 2. To challenge negative stereotyping by promoting older people as the active agents of their own lives rather than the passive recipients of services and activities undertaken on our behalf, 3. To combat the sense of isolation frequently experienced by older people, 4. To improve quality of life. Many statutory bodies are concerned with the implications of an ageing population in 15 or 20 year’s time – we seek to provide for older groups “now”. 5. To provide opportunities for people to share in lifelong learning experiences including social, educational, creative and recreational activities. 6. To provide the opportunity to actively contribute skills and expertise to the benefit of the wider community, 7. We ultimately aspire to a society where older people are recognised as full citizens and not simply as dependants or burdens straining the purse strings. These aims are enduring and underpin the philosophy of the Active Retirement movement all over the country. The activities we engage in are obviously important in themselves but what is more important is the effect the coming together of older people has on one another and on their communities after a lifetime of experience and “know how”.
National Executive & Development
The National Executive, since the 2007 annual general meeting, has convened at board level on 14 occasions. The National Executive receives and reviews monthly financial, regional, subcommittee and public relations reports. The National Executive approves and ratifies new affiliation applications. Also during the latter half of 2007 the National Executive in conjunction with the Regional Chairpersons and Committees conducted seven regional meetings to consider and unanimously receive approval for a Five Year Plan for Active Retirement Ireland. The Executive has approved proposals to form a company, limited by guarantee – Active Retirement Ireland Limited. More and more Charities and Community and Voluntary Groups are adopting this procedure which gives organisations protection in the event, for example, of claims or lawsuits. The Delegates who attended our 2007 AGM in the Amber Springs Hotel in Wexford were informed that the number of active retirement associations (ARAs) established had risen from 397 in 2006 to 425 in 2007. This year saw the establishment of the 450th association – Banagher Active Retirement in County Offaly. The number of affiliated associations in March 2008 has reached 457 with Active Retirement Ireland having affiliated groups in every county in Ireland.
Information & Publicity
Sports & Leisure Promotions Limited (S&L). This organisation publishes every two months the Senior Times a lifestyle magazine for older people. The magazine is circulated to Secretaries of all affiliated associations and each issue contains a page devoted to “active retirement news”. S & L staged two weekend Over 50’s Shows in Limerick in May 2007 and in the RDS in Dublin in October 2007. Active Retirement Ireland organised information stands at both of these shows which generated good interest and a large number of enquiries. Information stands were also taken at regional events in Galway, Tramore, Dun Laoghaire, Westport, Killarney, Waterford, Donegal and Tullamore. The Senior Times and Active Retirement Ireland organised a series of nationwide tea dances, each event attracting almost 300 “Fred Astaires” and “Gingers Rogers”. These tea dances are preceded by a presentation on healthy ageing and talks on issues such as osteoporosis and all events have been “sell outs”.
Active Retirement 3
During the year under review Active Retirement Ireland continues to provide speakers contributing to the Therapeutic Activity Programme at the St John of God Hospital in Stillorgan, Co. Dublin. Speakers also present at the monthly retirement planning courses organised by the Civil Service Training & Development Centre in Tullamore Co Offaly.
Shared Insurance Scheme
Active Retirement Ireland manages a Public Liability Insurance scheme specially tailored to meet the insurance requirements of the members of its affiliated associations. The cover extends to a wide range of listed activities and outings both in Ireland and also overseas. This insurance is priced on a “per member” basis with a maximum premium figure for associations with large memberships. This shared arrangement allows those affiliated associations with small memberships to avail of comprehensive public liability insurance cover at highly competitive rates.
Active Retirement Website
Work has continued on the revised website of Active Retirement Ireland during the year. A number of organisations originally assisted with the financial cost of this project – Bupa Ireland, Caoga Home and Motor Insurances, Galway Bay/Hudson Bay Hotel Group, Heffernan’s Travel and McGinley Coach Hire and their assistance is gratefully acknowledged. Links to these Sponsors and other websites of interest will be regularly updated. The volume of ARAs adding their own individual information into the national organisation’s website – www.activeirl.ie is gradually increasing A number of examples have now been uploaded to show what information can be made available e.g. Renmore ARA Co. Galway, Wicklow ARA Co. Wicklow, Cahir ARA Co Tipperary and Gorey ARA Co. Wexford.
Older & Bolder
The Older & Bolder campaign was originally launched in November 2006 steered by a consortium of five organisations (Age & Opportunity, Irish Hospice Foundation, Age Action, Irish Senior Citizens Parliament and the Senior Help Line. The consortium was supported by significant funding from The Atlantic Philantrophies (AP). Funding for a second phase of Older & Bolder was approved in January 2008 by AP and the steering consortium has been increased to eight members with the addition of Active Retirement Ireland, Alzheimer’s Association and the Carers’ Association. Older & Bolder Phase 2 aims to achieve a stronger more sustainable ageing sector with increased collaboration and unified voice influencing public attitudes and challenging ageism. The campaign seeks to translate government strategy on ageing and older people into better policies and practice and increased resources. Older & Bolder Phase 2 wants older people in Ireland at local, regional and national levels to be better informed, supported and motivated to advocate for themselves, to challenge ageism in all its manifestations and to take an active part in the national agenda.
The amount of contributions made to the Tsunami Fund up to the 31st of December 2007 has increased to €22,092.00. The principal areas where these funds have been used have been in house repairs, fishing boat purchases and repairs and the establishment of furniture workshops and food outlets. The funding has also supported parent and children education classes and self employment development projects. All the projects are based in Moratuwa, in Sri Lanka and are managed by Pastor Layasing de Silva. Grateful thanks are extended to all those ARAs who have contributed to the Tsunami Fund.
Irish Sports Council Grants
Active Retirement Ireland continues to have representation on the “Go for Life” steering committee which administers the Irish Sports Council activity grants for Older People. A large number of active retirement associations were among the 627 successful applicant groups that shared in the 2007 grant allocation of €350,000. A total of almost €2.3 million in grants to older peoples groups has been disbursed, under this scheme, over the last seven years. A further round of these grants will be announced in August/September 2008.

Growth of Active Retirement
The growth in the Active Retirement movement from its origins in 1978 up to the year 1999 was established through the extraordinary commitment of many volunteers and honorary officers. When this commitment was assisted by modest State core funding of IR£50,000 per annum for 3 years in 2000 the rate of progress and expansion in the organisation accelerated considerably. The following statistics demonstrate the significant progress achieved since formal core funding from the Department of Health & Children was put into place seven years ago. YEAR 1999 2001 2003 2005 2007 ESTABLISHED ASSOCIATIONS 150 175 200 350 425
Total membership has more than doubled from 10,400 (1999) to over 24,500 in 2007 during a period when many social commentators are of the opinion that volunteerism in Ireland is declining. The Active Retirement movement is a powerful antidote to cynicism and disengagement. Active Retirement people participate. They help themselves. They act to strengthen intergenerational links. Active Retirement combats loneliness and isolation. The movement has much to contribute to the community and to society in general.
Funding Active Retirement
In 1999, the Minister, at the time, Mr. Tom Moffatt wrote to Active Retirement Ireland stating that he was happy to approve a grant of IR£50,000 per annum from the 1st January 2000 towards the ongoing running costs of the national federation. Mr. Moffatt added that the position would be reviewed after three years by which time “I would expect to see significant growth nationally in your federation’s membership.” Unfortunately, since 2002/2003 our funding position has never been properly reviewed and our core funding (which was originally paid through the Department of Health and Children and now through the Health Service Executive) has not been increased for the past four years. Thankfully our affiliated associations voted overwhelmingly at the 2007 AGM to increase the affiliation fee to the national organisation from €1 to €5 per Member a decision which will greatly help to stabilize finances in the coming years.

The Regional Councils of Active Retirement Ireland
Active Retirement Ireland had established seven Regional Councils based on the old Health Board regional areas at the 31st December 2007. An 8th Regional Council was launched on the 24th January 2008 – the North East Region with the division of the Midland Region. Regional Councils meet not less than three times a year. Each Regional Council has a Development Officer(s) and is refunded one third of the affiliation fees generated from the associations established in their particular regional area. Additional training/development monies are also made available from central funds to the Regional Councils. The Eastern Region – Dublin, Wicklow & Kildare Members – 8,536 (8,280 in 2006) Number of affiliated associations – 102 The Mid Western Region – Limerick, Clare & Tipperary North Members – 2,456 (2,096 in 2006) Number of affiliated associations – 52 The Midland Region – Westmeath, Laois, Offaly & Longford Members – 1,352 (1,141 in 2006) Number of affiliated associations – 44 The North East Region – Cavan, Monaghan, Louth, Meath, Members – 2,069 (2,028 in 2006) Number of affiliated associations – 43 The North West Region – Leitrim, Sligo & Donegal Members – 861 (783 in 2006) Number of affiliated associations – 29 The South Eastern Region – Wexford, Waterford, Carlow, Kilkenny & Tipperary South Members – 3,857 (3,551 in 2006) Number of affiliated associations – 54 The Southern Region – Cork & Kerry Members – 2,632 (2,453 in 2006) Number of affiliated associations – 67 The Western Region – Galway, Roscommon & Mayo Members – 2,756 (2,532 in 2006) Number of affiliated associations – 66 Each Regional Council organise annually regional events:Training Seminars for Leaders – Committee, Chairpersons, Secretaries and Treasurers Seminars on Older Peoples’ needs and care Indoor Mat Bowling Competitions and Sports Fests Social events – Picnics, Tea Dances, Talent Competitions and Holidays Arts and Crafts Exhibitions In 2007 the Regional Councils organised Active Retirement Volunteers for the Senior Help Line and for a number of surveys/studies in relation to older people.
