“What matters to you, matters to us”

A Collaborative Approach

We work in partnership with HSE, local government, and other local agencies.

Making Connections is an active member of the Dlr Age Friendly Alliance and lead partner for the implementation of the next 5 Year Strategy.

Deep human connection is the purpose and the result of a meaningful life – and it will inspire the most amazing acts of love, generosity and humanity.
