During the current COVID-19 pandemic, the teams in each country are continuing to follow their own government guidelines. All mPower teams have adapted their working practices and the project is continuing to support beneficiaries through telephone and digital support. We encourage all who need support to get in touch. As a project we support those who are most vulnerable to the virus, and therefore want to do all we can to help at this difficult time. Stay safe, stay home and stay healthy and with our support we hope you will stay connected.
mPower is a five-year project supported by the European Union’s INTERREG VA Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB). The project is creating a cross-border service for 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 will run until December 2021. mPower works 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 are 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.
