LDC De Zeyp

The LDC De Zeyp is a social service centre in Ganshoren.
Ganshoren, situated in the North-West of Brussels is one of the smallest communes of the Brussels Region, counting 20.000 inhabitants on a surface area of 2.5 km².
The centre is located in a combined infrastructure with the local socio cultural centre, GC De Zeyp.

LDC De Zeyp reach on regular base nearly three hundred senior citizens. Five days a week we offer them a place to come for lunch. On regular base we organise information sessions, hobby afternoons, animation.
On the individual level we organize for them services which aims to improve their live at home. Aim is to increase the possibility to live in their own house or apartment for as long as possible (transport, chores service, household assistance,...).

In 2010 the LDC was partner in an intergenerational project on story telling, “jongleren”. The result was a book with a number of interviews of senior citizens by youngsters, talking about and visiting their favorite places in Brussels. T

This 2WARdS-Europe project is a next step in the intergenerational work of our centre.
