Intergenerational Friendships // IN PERSON

Details Hide[-]

To support us in delivering an intergenerational project which connects younger and older people through shared interests and gentle exercise.

We’ll put you in contact with an older adult, and give you the opportunity to chat face to face or online to get to know each other. It is likely you will need to support people to get online, and we will provide training for you to do this.

After a couple of weeks, all the pairs will come together in a group setting, to engage in intergenerational conversation, for example how the dating scene or social action have developed through the decades. We’ll also organise classes such as tai chi and yoga which everyone can get involved in together.

We will then organise 2 celebration events in parks, the first one of which is August 21st in Bramley park, with walks, tai chi, yoga, walking football and netball and zumba classes.
