WeDO is a European Partnership for the Wellbeing and Dignity of Older people. The two year project (2010-2012), co-financed by the European Commission, has been led by a steering group composed of 18 partners from 12 EU Member States.
The Irish coalition of WeDO believes that in order to improve the well-being and dignity of older people in Ireland and to protect them from elder abuse, older people need to be empowered and protected to live full lives as actively engaged citizens. We believe that their right to comprehensive high quality services according to their changing needs is secured through the development of appropriate and modern legislation, regulations and strategies which are effectively resourced and actively implemented.
