Socialising > Active citizenship
Active citizenship is taking an active role in the community, and many elderly people have a wealth of experience and skills that can benefit their local community. Community roles, responsibilities, and participation can involve a wide range of activities and provide a stimulating and rewarding experience for older people. Volunteering and/or campaigning with others in an active community role can bring real benefits to their community. Active citizenship can empower older people and give them a voice in their community through being involved in consultation processes or campaigns. There is an increasing
number of pensioner forums that play a significant role in the community, and offer older people the opportunity to socialise.
