What is the Intergenerational Project
The Intergeneration Project is a series of workbooks which aim to facilitate intergenerational discussions between younger and older members of the community. We have found that the intergenerational project helps to bring young and old people together in a structured way to facilitate learning and reduce loneliness.
There are many modules available and each can be purchased individually direct from this website. All funds from this project are put back into other community projects so by downloading these modules you will not only be helping your own cause but also providing valuable support to other groups in and around Burnham.
Each module provides all the resources you need to be able to carry out a complete session with order and younger people on a range of activities, all of which are designed to stimulate the interest of older people and help younger people to enjoy the interaction whilst learning along the way.
