The Belgian AGE member organisation Enéo is part of the network ‘Donner de la Vie à l’Age’ (‘Bring life to age’), launched in Southern Belgium on 2nd October to mark the International Day of Older Persons. The network, which is made up of volunteers and run by and for older persons, offers assistance via a free hotline.
The service will also be launched in Brussels on 4th October under the name « Allo ? Allo ! ».
The Belgian initiative is inspired by the Italian network ‘Filo d’argento’ promoted by the European Award for Healthy and Active Ageing 2014.
