Project description
The project was a response to the situation where seniors from Legionowo were seen by the local authorities only in the context of care services provision. Local officers ignored other problems of seniors and their social potential.
The aim of the project was to include the inhabitants aged 60+ in deciding on their own town, and on the offer directed to them.
As a result of the project activities, the Strategy of activities of the town Legionowo for seniors 60+ was developed for the years 2015-2020 and adopted in a resolution of the Town Council.
Under the project, a diagnosis of the needs of seniors was conducted (596 questionnaires, three research walks, three consultation meetings), and then in three thematic teams the strategy was developed. The draft of the document was consulted during 12 workshops, comments could also have been presented using phone or e-mail. The final version of the strategy was presented during a ceremonial event in the Town Hall, where the implementation of the project was also discussed.
The Partner, the Foundation Unit for Competencies, contributed their experiences in the field of participatory processes, social diagnoses, defining needs of disabled persons and seniors, and reviewing and presenting solutions. The other partner, the County Employment Bureau, delegated a trainee to the project and shared their experiences in the field of developing social policy.
The recipients of the project were senior inhabitants of Legionowo and local officers.
