Old age is an infinite source of richness

At be.Source, we are convinced that old age is an infinite source of richness.
This is why we are striving to change the way society views the elderly. We are also
convinced that elderly people in difficulty should not be left to their fate.
For this reason, we believe that all actions that help them should be supported.

About us Our actions Our network


By 2050, over 30% of our population will be aged 65 or more (WHO, World Report on Ageing and Health 2015).
The ageing of our population, in combination with the risk of poverty and social exclusion, is a major challenge today, and will be even more so for future generations. That is why the support of actions aimed at improving the living conditions of vulnerable senior citizens is a key priority for be.Source.

Training for volunteers

be.Source regularly organizes training courses for volunteers of all their partner associations. These training courses cover different topics which can be very helpful in daily practices with seniors. A first aid training is offered several times a year, in collaboration with and provided by the Belgian Red Cross,

This activity is always a huge success. The participants take lessons from this training which can be very useful in practice.

Volunteers' Evening 2022

After two years of interruption, we were finally allowed to reconnect with our tradtional volunteer evening. This event brings together all volunteers and assistants of all member associations of the network be.Source  to highlight the work being done for the aged and vulnerable persons and also to thank the volunteers for their efforts.

This year, Drome Park, the former Boitsfort hippodrome, was the place where more than hundred participants were welcomed for various workshops: some could let their creativity run free when making a tealight or a mug. Others discovered the Forêt de Soignes on foot or by bike or got a golf initiation.

After the activities, everyone gathered together in the enchanting setting of the Jardin du Pesage to raise a glass to friendship and to enjoy a delicious meal.

This fourth edition will have allowed volunteers to meet, discuss their practice and perhaps develop joint projects.
