Community Project Ageless Teenagers
This was another community project, which focused on seniors from all backgrounds providing them with social activities using music, exercise, and sharing of meals in order to break down barriers and reduce social isolation.
Our seniors attended the Club and used their life experiences to interact positively with the young people of the community and break down barriers between the young and older people.
This Community Project "Ageless Teenagers" at the time had been shortlisted for the 2019 peoples project which was featured live on ITV on Monday 1st April between 6pm – 6.30pm.
The project campaigned to raise awareness of Ageless Teenagers and secure votes using social media, peoples project and ITV.
The children at Little Market were invited by the community project to mingle with the Ageless Teenagers to help raise awareness.
The Sports Leaders of this project attended the setting with a number of their senior citizens to mingle with our children and supervising staff.
