The project in Sandfield Close Primary School, Leicester involved a group of ladies who met at the school regularly. With Food for Life Funding and The Big Lottery, an intergenerational project was developed around healthy eating and food.
It was important to run this project due to the high number of young people leaving school in the local Leith area without a positive destination in employment, education or training. Tensions in the local community between both young and older people encouraged us to take an intergenerational approach.
Through this project Apples and Honey Nursery hoped to connect younger and older people together. It aimed to bring together communities, to tackle loneliness and to create friendships. This case study is being worked on at present.
