Caritas Plymouth, in partnership with Plymouth CAST Multi-Academy Trust, has undertaken an ambitious 18-month project as part of an exciting national initiative known as Care Home Friends and Neighbours: Intergenerational Linking, which promotes young people’s engagement with older people living in care homes. Eleven primary schools from Plymouth, Devon, Torbay and Dorset have now established links with local care homes. We will be holding an online event on 6 October 2022 from 4-5pm to share some of the amazing experiences that have taken place. Come along to hear about:

  • the benefits of intergenerational linking for pupils and Care Home residents
  • the practicalities and challenges of intergenerational linking
  • how you can start up your own local link.

If you would like to join us please register here to receive the Zoom details.
