The elderly citizens often have large amounts of free time and high skill in specific areas, which they have difficulty employing in a useful manner. The basic concept of the TSBank project is to give elderly people the opportunity to use their time and knowledge in an advantageous way to society, enabling them to be more active contributing to their wellbeing and quality of life.
SilverSkills is an online platform that allows the elderly to volunteer their skills and time to perform work on a set of areas. People looking for support can then consult the platform for volunteer elderly that match the sought needs, and the platform puts both parties in contact.
SilverSkills is the online platform developed under the Time and Skill Bank (TSBank) for active ageing. The TSBank is funded by the Active and Assisted Living European Programme.
