What was the mPower project?
This is the legacy website for the mPower project. As we close the project we’ll be adding more content including content from the Festival in Belfast. Please check back regularly for updates and all content will be in place during July.
mPower was a five-year project supported by the European Union’s INTERREG VA Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB). The project was a cross-border collaboration to support older people (age 65+) living with long-term conditions across the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland.
The project started in late 2017 and ran until May 2022. mPower worked with communities to enable people to take the steps needed to live well, safely and independently in their own homes by self-managing their own health and care in the community.
Community Navigators were employed to work with people referred from health and care services to develop wellbeing plans connecting them to activities in their community as well as connecting them to technology to enhance support for health and wellbeing.
