Failte Isteach

Fáilte Isteach is a community project involving predominantly older volunteers welcoming migrants through conversational English classes.

The project provides the necessary language skills to new migrants in a student-centred, welcoming and inclusive manner while involving older volunteers and recognising their skills, expertise and contribution to the community.

***COVID-19 UPDATE: Under Level 3-5 restrictions, Fáilte Isteach will not be launching face-to-face classes. Many Fáilte Isteach groups are offering online classes. Numbers are limited for all classes at this time. Contact your local group for more information.


AgeWell is a peer to peer befriending service in partnership with the HSE, employing older adults – peer companions called Companions.

Our AgeWell Companions conduct home visits to older people to provide social engagement, and if required, act as a link to the healthcare system and local community services to promote health and build stronger connections between older adults and the services available to them in their community.

AgeWell is dedicated to supporting people as they age, improving well-being and health and creating nurturing communities for older adults.
