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.

    Il volontariato degli anziani nell’UE - Sintesi

    Autore(i): 
    Eurofound
    In questo anno europeo del volontariato, la presente relazione si propone di riprendere un tema piuttosto trascurato: il volontariato degli anziani in Europa. Solitamente si pensa agli anziani come ai beneficiari dell’opera del volontariato, mentre il loro contributo di volontari ha ricevuto un’attenzione molto più scarsa. Questa ricerca comprende 30 studi di casi di volontariato svolto da anziani in 11 Stati membri dell’Unione europea (UE).
