Care Home Friends and Neighbours: Intergenerational Linking Project

Closing date

Grants are available to not-for-profit organisations in England for projects which link younger people aged 5 to 14 from schools and youth organisations with older people living in local care homes.

The Care Home Friends and Neighbours: Intergenerational Linking Project is a national initiative from My Home Life England and The Linking Network. The programme is jointly funded by The National Lottery Community Fund (as part of their #iwill fund) and the Dunhill Medical Trust.

The aims of the programme are:

  • Improving young people’s confidence and develop their leadership skills.
  • Creating a world where care homes are truly connected to their communities.
  • Sustainably embedding intergenerational linking into the curriculum and ethos of a school and/or youth organisation.
