This final guide is the result of a cooperation between five partners from five European countries (Germany, Greece, Finland, Lithuania and Italy), which consists of non-governmental organizations and one university. Every partner has special competences in different fields and has brought their competences into the project.

UPS has trained more than 100 elderly migrants of different migrant milieus to qualified senior migrants, taking over the bridging function to migrants of specific milieus that need help in diverse areas of their lives. These senior migrants have been selected with the help of a specially developed selection procedure and trained within 10 days using an innovative training programme, in which every partner has had a special expert role.

The practical guide is addressed to adult education institutions and other institutions training potential future senior migrants, integration agencies,  migrants’ self-help organisations, local authorities, interested people with migration background wanting to work voluntary as senior migrants to help other migrants in need.

The manual is available in different languages:

  • English
  • German
  • Greek
  • Finnish
  • Lithuanian
  • Italian
