On 17 and 20 of May 2021 stakeholder meetings took place in Bijelo Polje and Barto to gather different perspectives on the needs of older people and to learn more about the support services provided by various stakeholders. The meetings also aimed at identifying gaps in the support system and further needs for improvement as well as to get an idea about stakeholders’ vision for the Community Care Centres and possibilities for cooperation and financial support beyond the project’s duration. Participants included local authorities, representatives of a nursing home, an NGO, an health center, an emergency center, the association of pensioners, a center for social welfare and the Red Cross of  Bar and Bijelo Polje.
