A really exciting opportunity and a fantastic chance for young people to take part in meaningful social action!

18/09/2020

TLN has partnered with My Home Life to develop a model for Intergenerational Linking; promoting young people’s engagement with care homes for older people through the #iwill fund and The Dunhill Medical Trust.

The Linking Network has been awarded funding to develop and lead a local project in Bradford whereby schools and youth organisations will be linked with a local care home for older people. As with Schools Linking, this will be a non-contact model and will offer the opportunity to create meaningful relationships between generations even in a time of social distancing. Funding is now available for other organisations to join the project and develop Intergenerational Linking in other local areas.

There will be a webinar at 4pm on the 7th October, where the project team will share a bit more information about the project and will outline the grants available to co-produce Intergenerational Linking in your local area.

Sign up to the webinar is available here along with supporting documentation:

Applications will be assessed, and grants awarded by The Dunhill Medical Trust.  The application portal will open on the 7th October and the deadline for submission is 13th November
