Educational and Proactive Programme - Safe Haven
The programme aims at increasing the safety and sense of security among elders and preventing their social and digital exclusion. Such broad definition of the aim determines its interdisciplinary character and social engagement. Traditional realisation forms, i.e. meetings, lectures at retirement clubs, libraries, open universities, interweave with innovative solutions, namely organisation of dinners with elders, creation of an intergenerational platform for social operation, proactive quizzes and crosswords. The proactive effect is conditional upon educating elders, reaching their relatives, friends, neighbours, and increasing their attunement to elders’ problems. As a promotion tool, the programme relied on cooperation with the local media, project partners' websites, and social media. Outreach campaigns are conducted in offices, hospitals, healthcare centres, public transport means, churches, libraries, residential buildings. Project participants receive proactive materials: carbon monoxide detectors, umbrellas, bags, reflective bands, the National Bank of Poland publications on safe finances, proactive bookmarks, multimedia safety guides for elders.
The project was scheduled for 2015–2016.
