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.
ACEEU's Role: Project quality assurance and evaluation leader, co-leader of an intellectual output
As the project quality assurance and evaluation leader, ACEEU will develop quality indicators, quality control measures and evaluation procedures for overall project management, intellectual outputs, and other project activities. ACEEU will also contribute as co-leader in the development and piloting of Awareness and Capacity-Building Programme, as well as a supporter in working on other intellectual outputs.
