Essex County Council have launched a new resource looking to inspire ideas for bringing different generations together.

The Essex Age-Friendly Collaborative Toolkit showcases projects which have been building intergenerational connections across Essex. It explains the positive outcomes which these have achieved.

It features Memory Cafes in libraries, virtual reality technology projects and more. It is designed to inspire groups in Essex to come up with their own ideas for intergenerational activity.

Bringing different age groups together helps build care and compassion in communities. The toolkit shares a range of age-friendly activities that have been making a difference in Essex. It also explains how groups can get involved themselves.
