We’re recruiting a Researcher to support Intergenerational Linking

Researcher Post – My Home Life England at City, University of London.

Join Care Home Friends and Neighbours: Intergenerational Linking – our national programme supporting young people to engage with care homes!

Applications are invited for a part-time Research Assistant/Fellow to work with the My Home Life England team, in partnership with The Linking Network, for a 12-month period on our high profile national project promoting young people’s engagement with older people living in care homes across England.

As part of the team, you will evaluate 11 local organisations working to develop and deliver fun, engaging activities that bring younger and older people together.

The successful candidate will be required to carry out the evaluation of the work, engaging with 11 local projects and the core delivery team to gather data and analyse local fieldnotes gathered by the team. The bulk of the evaluation will be qualitative in nature, working with a range of datasets gathered from local projects and the national team.

Care Home Friends and Neighbours: Intergenerational Linking is funded through the #iwill Fund. The #iwill Fund is made possible thanks to £54 million joint investment from The National Lottery Community Fund and the Department of Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) to support young people to access high quality social action opportunities. The Dunhill Medical Trust is acting as a match funder for this project and awarding grants on behalf of the #iwill Fund.
