The Right Step are running an inter generational project to celebrate the Age of Creativity Festival throughout May 2019 . This project brings local primary school children to visit Active Armchairs sessions with residents in local care homes.
The project will involve 6 care homes and 6 local primary schools and the school children will visit the care homes and participate in dance classes with the residents.
The Right Step run a programme called Active Armchairs, which are seated dance classes for older adults and the children will visit and participate in the residents' regular Active Armchairs sessions.
This is a great opportunity for two generations to meet and be creative together!
We are very excited about this project and hope this will create community connections between the care homes and the schools. We hope they will continue to work together in the future.
