Mobility Matters

Mobility Matters is an awareness programme on road safety for seniors which is made up of a resource pack and accompanying DVD. The programme deals with the following topics of information:

  • Legal obligations
  • Buying a car
  • Keeping your car in good condition
  • Driving safely: knowing what is happening around you
  • Safety belts and child restraints
  • Medical conditions
  • Medicines, driver fatigue and driving
  • Healthy living and driving
  • Planning for change and staying mobile
  • Planning for the future

The programme is delivered over a two hour workshop. Sessions are highly interactive and activity based. A purpose built DVD has been designed to accompany the programme.
The RSA can run a training programme for trainers involved in older groups such as Active Retirement Ireland.

Participants will be expected to deliver the programme to community groups locally. Participants will receive a training pack, DVD and a certificate.
