4 de June de 2024

Government of Navarra has approved a call for aid to local entities with the
aim of protecting the rights of people over 65 years old and to detect
situations of vulnerability, lack of protection or loneliness.

The call,
managed by the Navarre Agency for the Autonomy and Development of People, is
part of the Active and Healthy Aging Strategy of Navarre and the WHO plan for
the Decade of Healthy Aging 2020-2030. A total of 300,000 euros has been
earmarked, distributed in two lines: 200,000 euros for retirement library
programs and 100,000 euros for the creation of elderly networks.

center programs are designed to keep the elderly in their environment,
promoting their inclusion and active participation in the community. The grants
are intended for programs with a minimum duration of eight months, with three
hours a day, three days a week, for seniors over 65 years of age with signs of
fragility or seniors over 60 years of age with disabilities. The subsidies will
cover 50% of personnel costs, with a maximum of 20,000 euros per entity.

The second
line of aids will subsidize the creation and maintenance of elderly networks,
formed by institutions, social entities and local businesses, to offer
comprehensive care and detect situations of vulnerability.

projects must be carried out in 2024 and promote the defense of the rights of
the elderly through activities, projects and campaigns. 50% of the costs of
hiring a part-time professional will be covered, with a maximum of 8,000 euros
per entity. Projects must include a detailed description, an annual work plan,
and satisfaction surveys. The deadline for submitting applications is June 16.
