09 January 2019

Activate Learning have contributed to a national intergenerational research policy

Following on from the Channel 4 TV programme, ‘Old People's Home for 4 Year Olds’, Activate Learning health and early years students and staff have contributed to a national intergenerational research policy, the result of which was released yesterday by United For All Ages.

To celebrate the launch of this policy, BBC South Today Oxford, spent yesterday morning interviewing staff and students during an intergenerational session at Green Pastures Christian nursing home in Banbury.

The BBC spoke to students and staff about the benefits of the elderly and children working together, and how Activate Learning students are encouraged to get involved in running their own ‘intergenerational’ activities, to enhance their employability skills and to ensure that they are at the forefront of new care initiatives.
