Case Studies: 2018
Read our most recent intergenerational case studies from across Scotland.
Torbay childminders have brought younger and older people together through a project called Making Bridges with Music, tackling social isolation along the way. Music workshops are facilitated by artists to build neighbourhood connections and new friendships.
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.
