Intergenerational Linking Project

To be completed by:

Time: - | Venue:

An exciting social action project linking together young people aged 5-14 from schools and youth organisations with older people living in care homes across England.

The project will link your school with a local care home for older people and will give children opportunities to develop their own leadership abilities as well as having fun sharing stories between generations. It aims to connect care homes for older people with a local school or youth organisation so that both younger and older people can engage together in a range of activities. As well as meaningful connections between generations, the project offers children and young people the opportunity to be part of youth-led social action and develop their own leadership abilities.

The Intergenerational Linking programme will be a virtual programme initially where children and older people in care homes will connect by exchanging messages and activity outcomes. We are clear that it must be manageable for teachers. The Linking Network will provide virtual CPD for teachers and care home staff to equip them to lead the project. We will also provide a range of classroom activities and resources which are tailored to the current context along with ongoing guidance to support Intergenerational Linking.
