Intergenerational Work Launched

Our new Intergenerational volunteers have now been trained and embarked on their first week of activities within the nursery, primary and high schools.

The volunteers have been recruited and supported by our Intergenerational Development Officer  and introduced to the school in the lead up to Christmas.

13 volunteers will be supporting pupils in 30+ classes a week, ranging from one-to-one reading, maths, improvement in social skills, additional writing support, spelling games, literacy and fine motor skills, story-telling and promoting vocabulary and spelling through discussion and writing.

The volunteers are thoroughly enjoying their new activities within the school and have been made very welcome by all of the staff. Although at an early stage, their support has already had a positive effect on the pupils throughout the schools.    

If you have family members who are 50+ and have a few hours to spare a week, we will be recruiting new volunteers in February. Training is over 3 half-days and there is a requirement to commit to between 2-4 hours a week.
