Active Retirement Ireland is inviting interested parties to tender for the development of a new wellbeing toolkit and consultation workshops.
Re-emerging into Light is a three-month wellbeing initiative which will consist of developing a peer-led wellbeing toolkit for older people through consultation on what activities ARI members have engaged in since re-emergence from lockdown. This information will then be used to co-design a wellbeing toolkit for older people that will highlight the variety of activities engaged in by older people, which contribute to their wellbeing.
The consultancy will also identify current policy in the area of wellbeing for older people as a baseline. Following the toolkit development, nine workshops will be delivered in each of the regions that represent the ARI membership. This targeted intervention is aimed at establishing a peer-led, sustainable response to mental health issues experienced by ARI members during the COVID-19 crisis. Each workshop will highlight the benefits of physical activity, creativity and friendship towards maintaining positive mental health and wellbeing in older age.
This initiative is in line with Mental Health Ireland’s three-year strategy ‘Mental Health for all – Hope, Strength and Action’ supporting communities as we emerge from the COVID-19 crisis.
Deadline for applications is 23 September 2022. Please CLICK HERE for the tender document and details on how to submit a tender.
