Programme RE-GENERATION (Revitalization of the quality of life of the elderly)

The three-year programme is implemented from June 2020 until the end of May 2022 with financial support from the Ministry of Labour, pension system, family and Social Policy.

No to violence against the elderly project

The “No to violence against the elderly” project was implemented in 2020 with financial support from the Ministry of Demography, family, Youth and Social Policy.

Through the public campaign and the sharing and presentation of video animation within the framework of the project, we informed the public about the importance of recognizing, resolving and preventing violence against the elderly that is happening daily, but is not explored enough and remains a taboo-topic in the public.

No to violence against the elderly

Project Youth people for the old

The project was implemented at the end of 2019 with the financing of the City of Zagreb.

The basic activity of the project was the implementation of training for volunteers who acquired skills and familiarized themselves with the characteristics of work with the elderly and the powerless. Furthermore, volunteer monitoring system was established.

This has enabled the launch of a voluntary programme that will contribute to the reintegration of the elderly into the life of the community.
