One of our Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives for 2013 is a nationwide series of security seminars in conjunction with An Garda Síochána.
They have been organised in response to a growing fear among older people about security at home and the events are free and open to the public.
Throughout 2013 and the first quarter of 2014 a total of 18 seminars will take place in 18 counties around the country attended by local Crime Prevention Officer of An Garda Síochána, security consultants and community representatives.
Eddie O’Toole, Operations Director of Bluebird Care says, “There has been a 60% increase in calls to Senior Line – a freephone line for older people – worried about security at home. And this is also reflected in our own network as we hear anecdotal evidence from the thousands of older people that we work with on a daily basis. We are inviting members of local communities, neighbourhood watch schemes, residents associations and other interested groups along.”
