Tender for background research for a campaign to increase the numbers of older people in volunteering across Dublin City
2012 is the European Year of Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations. Research on the benefits of volunteering among older people is well documented, as is the invaluable support they provide to the community. At the same time the contributions older people make or could potentially make to volunteering has yet to be realised, primarily due to societal attitudes and a lack of awareness. People are living longer and active ageing is about getting more, not less, out of life as people get older.
Part of the ring fenced funding volunteer centres receive in 2012 will go towards showcasing the contribution of older volunteers across Dublin city, raising the profile of volunteering among people aged 55 and older, and increasing the number of older volunteers. There will be three phases to the project: research and planning, implementation and evaluation. The successful candidate will be awarded the contract for the research phase.
