In this section, you will find the reports analysing the issue of ageing and of older people’s social inclusion in six European countries: Austria, France, Greece, Italy, Latvia, and the United Kingdom, as well as a European Report compiling and summarising the six national ones.
The European Report on Intergenerational Learning and Social Inclusion of Elderly People presents an overview of the six participating countries in terms of demographic trends, social inclusion of older persons, the services they can take advantage of, as well as intergenerational policies and possible interventions to deal with ageism. It then focuses on the main needs and difficulties of older people, and on the skills they need to develop. In light of the increasing complexity of social isolation, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, it demonstrates a common interest across age groups for more activities and a shared concern for elderly isolation.
The needs of social workers and caregivers in every country are also presented, and best practice examples and key recommendations for inspiring successful intergenerational activities are presented.
