Intergenerational Work with Animals
Wednesday 9th June 2021, 10:00am - 11:30am
We are delighted to invite you along to this animal and intergenerational themed session where we will explore intergenerational work with animals.
Our guest speaker is Rhona Dorrington from HenPower. Rhona will be talking about the project that she is involved in and the possibilities of intergenerational work with animals. HenPower is a national initiative which aims to tackle loneliness and isolation, specifically in the older generation, through arts activities and hen-keeping. It also recognises the therapeutic benefits of human/animal interaction.
We will also offer some case studies and ideas for you to consider if you would like to get involved in this type of intergenerational activity.
We have observed that some of our network have brought along their pets to meetings and we would like to extend the invitation for you to bring along your pets.
