HAIRE: Healthy Ageing through Innovation in Rural Europe

Funded by Interreg 2 Seas from January 2020 until September 2022, our aim is to reduce isolation and loneliness and improve wellbeing in the 60+ age group; increase collaboration between participating agencies and Voluntary and Community Sector Organisations (VCSO); improve rural community vitality; increase active participation of older people and voluntary sector in service design and delivery; create new models of service delivery; achieve widespread change to models of delivery.

The overall objective of HAIRE is to:

Develop and test systems that empower and enable older people (aged 60+) in rural areas to:

  1. define what support they need;
  2. participate in the design & delivery of services; and
  3. develop solutions for themselves to reduce loneliness and improve their quality of life, health and wellbeing, based on their own interests, capabilities and preferences and supported by the voluntary, private and public sectors.
