LGNI's Creating Intergenerational Connections Project funded by the Halifax Foundation for NI has been all about the development of new intergenerational links between schools and older people's settings! We are delighted to share our fourth and final intergenerational link as part of this project between Bloomfield Collegiate and Alpha Housing Supported living scheme Johnston Court in Belfast!
The pupils completed Dementia Awareness Training delivered by LGNI and then planned a visit to Johnston Court to meet up with older people who live there.
Check out the lovely photos below of the groups first session which involved a good chat, lots of smiles and a bit of craic! We can't wait to see your links progress over the coming weeks!
