Encourage schools and groups of older people to establish Intergenerational groups

The Children’s Commissioner for Wales has created an  intergenerational resource with the Older People’s Commissioner that aims to encourage schools and groups of older people to establish Intergenerational groups – https://www.childcomwales.org.uk/our-work/resources/intergenerational-resource/

The resource can be downloaded and used as a lesson plan in schools.

Having an intergenerational project can be a really positive way of breaking down barriers between younger and older people, of learning new skills, and of boosting confidence and wellbeing. We’ve made three videos that show the positive impact intergenerational projects can have, and a lesson plan to help teachers to explore the possibility of starting an intergenerational group with their pupils.

You can download the intergenerational lesson plan here.
