About the project
The project ‘’Let us be active! – Social inclusion of older people through volunteering in Estonia, Latvia and Finland’’ promotes the social activity of seniors as volunteers in the cities of Pärnu, Riga and Turku.

Older people have knowledge, skills and experience which is their greatest potential that they can contribute with to the society. To give them this chance cities of Pärnu, Riga and Turku decided to set a project ‘’Let us be active! – Social inclusion of older people through volunteering’’ and to promote and develop the volunteering opportunities for seniors.

Who will we involve?
Our primary target group are older people in Pärnu, Riga and Turku. We want to reach them individually and through relevant organizations, as well as social services of the city. We will also work with health care professionals and social workers to promote the senior volunteering as one of the means of social inclusion of older people.

Partners
The project is a common effort of cities of Pärnu, Riga and Turku, as well as Baltic Region Healthy Cities Association, who is the Lead Partner.
