Europe is undergoing a previously unwitnessed ageing of the population. In view of this, social inclusion of the elderly and strategies to promote voluntary work among older people are now important items on the EU’s political agenda. This report is based on 30 case studies from 11 Member States in which volunteers, not always exclusively older people, were successfully engaged in meaningful projects of all kinds. The cases demonstrate best practice in all aspects of the issue, ranging from strategies to recruit volunteers to ways of keeping them engaged and utilising their talents to the full. The report has a special focus on volunteering by those who may themselves be at risk of social exclusion.

    Freiwilligentätigkeit älterer Menschen in der EU - Zusammenfassung

    Autor(en): 
    Eurofound
    In diesem Europäischen Jahr der Freiwilligentätigkeit greift der vorliegende Bericht das ziemlich vernachlässigte Thema der Freiwilligentätigkeit älterer Menschen in Europa auf. Auch wenn gemeinhin die Auffassung vorherrscht, dass ältere Menschen eigentlich eher diejenigen sind, die ein ehrenamtliches Engagement in Anspruch nehmen, wird ihrem eigenen Beitrag als Ehrenamtliche sehr viel weniger Aufmerksamkeit zuteil. Die vorliegende Untersuchung umfasst 30 Fallstudien über die Freiwilligentätigkeit älterer Menschen aus 11 EUMitgliedstaaten.
