Are you interested in intergenerational work and the exciting possibilities of linking young and older people together?

On Wednesday 7th October 4-5:30pm we’re hosting a free webinar all about our Care Home Friends and Neighbours: Intergenerational Linking Project – an exciting national initiative from us at My Home Life England and The Linking Network which is linking young people from schools and youth organisations with older people living in care homes across England.

In the webinar, we’ll be sharing more about:

  • Our free materials and resources

  • Applying for a grant in England from The Dunhill Medical Trust to create a new intergenerational linking project in your local area

This webinar is especially relevant for:

  • Community organisations

Care Home Friends and Neighbours: Intergenerational Linking Project is an exciting national initiative from us at My Home Life England and The Linking Network, combining expertise on quality of life for older people living in care homes with expertise focused on young people and inclusion.  The project has adapted to new ways of working and is tapping into the wealth of resources, capabilities and networks that young people and older people bring to their communities.

The project is funded through the #iwill Fund.  The National Lottery Community Fund and the Department of Digital, Culture, Media & Sport are each investing £25 million seed funding to create the #iwill Fund. The Dunhill Medical Trust is acting as a match funder and awarding grants on behalf of the #iwill Fund.
