Intergenerational Resilience Project “Together we can do it!”
Young people paired with older people from their communities. Young people help the older people to build some technological resilience to the ever changing times whilst sharing the older peoples life skills from going through the war and periods of instability/change after, the skills they learnt that allow them now to be more resilient to change and issues facing them. Help to reduce social isolation on both sides, improve knowledge and well being. Will can work with your school to create a bespoke approach that fits for your setting and community. It will include cooking and support for using technology such as iPads and smart phones. We work with professional boundaries and safeguarding to project all the course participants. Recent studies have shown the benefits of young people spending time with the older generation having a positive impact on their mental health in their later life.
Young carers and sibling resilience project “We can!”
A holistic approach to supporting young carers and family members of someone with a disability such as ASD. The program aims to build resilience and empathy for the sibling when challenged by the daily pressures of home lie. The program will support them to understand how it feels for the family member and why they take things out on those closest. It will also look at gaining an understanding of the course participants individually needs so for example if they are supporting a sister with ASD and someone else on the program is supporting an elderly relative with dementia, then we will cover all issues and help them understand them in an age appropriate way.
