SIPPE - social activities for elderly people

Elderly people are vulnerable to loneliness, health problems, and depression. To support their well-being, project SIPPE developed a so-called well-being party method. Well-being parties aim at activating the elderly and to improve their overall well-being. Well-being parties are events hosted by elderly people themselves and focusing on topics such as nutrition, sleep and rest, participation in social life, nature, physical activities, and music. To enable these activities, the project developed a method to train elderly people as host/hostess of well-being parties.

YOUTH-SPORT-VOL - a platform to find volunteering work

To improve possibilities for young people to enter the labour market, YOUTH-SPORT-VOL implemented a sport volunteering model. The model allows young adults to gain working knowledge in the framework of volunteering, thus improving their possiblities to find work. To make volunteering easily discoverable, the project created a web service that allows browsing of events and registering as a volunteer in them. A permanent secreatariat for sport volunteering was established at the Tallinn University as well.
