The paper deals with active ageing and presents results from a research study realized on the topic of senior volunteering. The author presents findings and conclusions from qualitative data, which was collected from coordinators working with volunteers in various non–profit organizations across Slovak republic and from senior volunteers themselves. The main research design was the grounded theory approach. Semi–standardized interviews and various other textual data sources served as the backbone of the analytical part. The qualitative part of the research was complemented with non–parametric exact statistical procedures. The main goal of the study was to identify the motives for volunteering of the elderly, investigate various factors connected with this phenomenon and to improve the ways NGO’s can approach this population. The findings support the thesis that volunteering in a higher age canimprove the individual life of seniors, although many barriers and obstacles were identified too.

The paper introduces the concept of social capital and deals with the basic relationships within this concept. There has been considerable and increasing interest in social capital theory in recent years, evidenced by its application to various disciplines and numerous subject areas. Existing studies have suggested that social capital has considerable benefits for a range of economic and sociological outcomes. These purported benefits and the concept behind social capital, are not new but rooted in the work of early economic and sociologic thinkers. Social capital refers to connections among individuals – social networks and the norms of reciprocity and trustworthiness that arise from them. Social capital draws attention to the fact that civic foundation is most effective when embedded in a network of reciprocal social relations. Interaction enables people to build communities and thus form a social structure. A sense of belonging and a personal experience of social networks (and the relationships of trust and tolerance, which result from it) can be a great help for people. The paper further deals with the current problems of civil society in Slovak Republic and illustrates the state of the society using another valuable indicator – subjective well–being.
