 The SeniorPoint project is focused on supporting the active life of senior citizens by operating contact points in district towns in particular.  Currently the project is being implemented in the South Moravian Region, where it has 10 branches, in the Moravian-Silesian Region, where there is one branch, and in the Vysočina Region, where there are two branches.  

The primary target group is that of senior citizens, i.e., persons older than 55, for whom trained workers are available at each SeniorPoint to provide them information about housing, prevention of health problems, recreational activities, safety and social issues, and last but not least also the complete services of the Senior Pass project. One component of that is also free legal counseling.    

The SeniorPoint project aims to actively involve senior citizens in the life around them, aid them in orienting themselves in the everyday flood of information, and facilitate their communications with the authorities and institutions.

We collaborated with the SeniorPoint organization on this project:

Prevention of domestic violence against senior citizens 3, implemented from 1 January 2016 ‒ 31 December 2016. This project was implemented on the basis of financial support from the Ministry of Interior of the Czech Republic.

Prevention of domestic violence against senior citizens 2, implemented from 1 January 2015 ‒ 31 December 2015. This project was implemented on the basis of financial support from the Ministry of Interior of the Czech Republic.

Activities of the partner and collaboration with the partner

The aim of the collaboration established with SeniorPoint is to educate the broader public with a focuse on the target group of senior citizens through lectures held at the SeniorPoints in the South Moravian Region. Those attending are presented with opportunities to aid the victims of domestic violence and the services of the Persefona orgnaization along with good practice in the area of working with domestic violence victims.

The training “Basics of working with domestic violence victims”, accredited by the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs of the Czech Republic, will be attended by the staffers of the  SeniorPointů contact points to increase their competence when coming into contact with victims of domestic violence.
