Fostering Neighborhood Participation to Protect and Care for Elderly Citizens
NEXT DOOR aims to promote social capital within neighbourhoods, fostering the protection of
elderly citizens and increasing their levels of self-esteem and quality of life. The project seeks to
develop a methodology to engage multi-level stakeholders in the response to elderly needs, providing
effective resources to enable general public (‘the neighbours’) to support older people living alone in
their communities, as well as to provide a pack of resources for professionals and policy-makers to
implement a full-model of neighbourhood support. The ultimate goal is to create stronger ties among
neighbours and a sense of belonging to the community.
