Case Studies

  • Childminders, a solution for intergenerational co-location

    Having seen many intergenerational programmes in the USA specifically target vulnerable children because of the beneficial impact it has upon their well-being, confidence, speech and language we decided to look at increasing the time and opportunities for the young children and the older adults to spend together.

  • We Love Our Grandmas!

    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.

  • Befriending Caithness intergenerational link

    Approached by the local hospital and care home, Befriending Caithness was asked if they could fill the gap that currently exists within the community. More and more older people are being kept in hospital or a care home, and whilst in residence their relatives find it difficult to visit due to lack of transport, mobility or their own ill health. The longer the elderly person stays in the hospital the more isolated and lonely they become.
