What is Silverskills?

Silverskills is a matchmaking platform that allows older adults to volunteer their skills to carry out tasks and activities for their local community from their own homes or within their neighbourhoods. The platform is designed to boost the social engagement and self-esteem of older adults, overall improving their well-being.

“Silverskills gives the elderly the opportunity of contributing with their time and skills in a useful manner to society. This contribution is possible thanks to the use of digital technologies as a tool to promote social awareness and community engagement.”
