If all of us get older , why not do it with movement and joy? The Senior Mais project wants to ensure that this happens with a wide range of free activities.

The Project Ser Sénior Ser Mais (Being Senior Being More) is a wide range of activities, tending to be free, that bring color, movement and joy to people's lives, especially the senior population. The main objective is to promote an active and healthy aging within the population, maximize autonomy and functional capacity of the participants and foster interpersonal relationships. The project has been successful from the beginning, but we want to do even more and better, and reach more people!

To qualify for the Senior Mais one should simply be over 55 years, ask for the Senior Mais member card at CCCD and ... participate in the scheduled activities!  

The project runs from October 2014, after being one of 27 awarded by Banco BPI, among 580 applications nationwide. And not everything that is good has to come to an end, we want to continue to grow the project and reach as many people as possible. The support of BPI allowed to start and to run the project for about 18 months and having been exhausted the initial support, we now need funding to continue the project that has already reached more than 400 people in an extensive community of about 8000 senior residents of Carnaxide and Queijas.

We want to continue to offer, free of charge, group classes in our facilities, outdoor activities involving relationship with nature and cultural tourism activities. We seek to reach the most fragile senior citizens to improve their quality of life and we want to organize group activities in partnership with private social welfare institutions.

So we can achieve what we aspire we need the help of all participants but also the general public, hoping to recognize the value of what we have been doing. Come on!

    Precisamos da sua ajuda agora!

    Caros apoiantes e seguidores,

    Temos pouco mais de uma semana até terminar a campanha. É verdade que os apoios até agora recolhidos são reduzidos, quer por resistência do público quer por erros de comunicação nossos, mas vamos dar tudo o que temos até final e temos programadas uma série de acções para o decorrer da próxima semana.

    Mas queremos pedir a vossa ajuda. O vosso contributo será fundamental para chegarmos ao maior número de pessoas possíveis. Pedimos que escrevam um email, a incitar o apoio à campanha, para os vossos 15/20 contactos mais próximos, que partilhem no facebook, por sms ou até mesmo... pessoalmente!

    O link de acesso à campanha é este: http://ppl.com.pt/pt/causas/ser-senior-ser-mais

    Concretizar o apoio é muito fácil mas deixar para depois é mais fácil ainda. Por favor tentem evitar que isso aconteça! Ajudem-nos.

    Um abraço a todos e o nosso maior obrigado,
    A Equipa do CCCD
