Since 2002 Burnham Intergenerational Programme has been bringing together children aged 9 to 11 with older people aged between 60 and 95. To date nearly 600 children and 50 older people have benefitted from the opportunity to enjoy learning together through a wide range of shared activities. It is one of the longest running and most highly regarded initiatives of Buckinghamshire based charity, Burnham Health Promotion Trust (BHPT).
We have created the LaST Toolkit in order to share our experience, ideas and materials. We hope this Toolkit will encourage and enable others to set up programmes of their own and so discover the lasting benefits, and the joy, that comes from building intergenerational connections, whether face to face or online.
