ALONE, the charity that supports older people to age at home, are delighted to announce a new media partnership with Dublin City FM. This alliance will support the work of ALONE, as it aims to raise awareness of issues facing older people living in Ireland.
This new move will see ALONE’s work receive increased media presence, emphasising the issues concerning older people. ALONE provides services including Support Coordination, Befriending, Housing Support and campaigns on topics such as housing, poor services and more, which offer vital support to older people in Ireland. This new partnership will aim to improve awareness of this work and opportunities for public and recipient involvement.
Seán Moynihan, CEO of ALONE, commented, “We are delighted to begin this new partnership with Dublin City FM. It points to the prevalence of issues facing older people and highlights the importance of ALONE’s work as we fight to combat these. By partnering with us, Dublin City FM recognise these issues and I look forward to seeing how our work together can ultimately help older people.”
He continued, “This alliance will greatly help to communicate ALONE’s services and messages to the public, bringing such issues of homelessness, loneliness and lack of supports to the forefront of listeners’ awareness. This is of increasing importance as Ireland faces a rapidly growing older demographic.”

We greatly appreciate the work they have achieved and hope to support this work, and further the benefit to older people in Dublin.
