Social Action Resources
There are lots of wonderful things we can do to show our love for the world. This resource will help ignite discussions in your class about the actions that we can take to show the world we care. It contains the inspiring poem ‘Start Now’ by Matt Goodfellow, which encourages us to be the change we want to see.

Send A Virtual Message
Many older people are having to stay inside to keep themselves safe and older people living in care homes aren’t allowed visitors at the moment. But we can still remain connected to those we care about. Why not write a message and a picture on a poster, take a photo and send it over – this will make those you care about smile. Many people are including rainbows.

Bring the Outside Inside for an older person.
Older people and residents in care homes are staying inside at the moment to stay safe.
Here are a few steps to help you to create your own ‘Blossom Tree’. When you’re finished, send your picture to your local care home or older relative or neighbour so that they can put it up and bring the Spring inside.
The following resources have been created by My Home Life England and The Linking Network as part of the Care Home Friends and Neighbours: Intergenerational Linking Project. Their activities are designed to be used by parents, schools, youth organisations and care homes. They promote contact between young people and older people living in care homes, even when face-to-face linking isn’t possible.
Visit http://carehomefans.org/remote-intergenerational-linking/ to keep updated on the project and new resources.
Decorate a pebble in bright colours and patterns. Take them to your local care home and put them in the garden. They will become little patches of colour and friendship when a resident looks out of their window!
