Resource type: Research Report

The International Journal of Aging and Society |

Atlantic’s philanthropic work has played a role in transforming the ageing sector in Ireland since 2008, according to this report.

Several methods were used in a sector-wide evaluation, including documentary analysis, one-to-one in-depth interviews, a cross-sectional survey of grant-holders and collaborative work with Northern Ireland. The report finds that philanthropy has played a pivotal role in enhancing capacity, infrastructure and expertise through large-scale investment in research and training, strengthening older people’s organisations and developing centres of excellence.
