The School of Life is our intergenerational programme, delivering a set of exciting opportunities across areas of Northamptonshire which will bring together older and younger people. Activities can include one-off sessions, longer four to six week programmes, or one-off celebratory events. This project is a unique and fantastic opportunity which celebrates the skills, knowledge and experience of all generations by engaging them with a wide range of activities together.

Our aims are to;

  • Combat barriers between different ages
  • Challenge stereotypes about young and older people
  • Create fabulous opportunities for exchanging skills
  • Build strong partnership working and friendships
  • Encourage social inclusion and reduce isolation
  • Support groups to set up their own intergenerational projects.

Nene Valley Community Action is working in partnership with South Northants Volunteer Bureau and Voluntary Impact Northamptonshire to deliver the "School of Life" project. Three new staff have been appointed working in 4 areas across Northamptonshire to drive the project.

  • East Northants
  • Wellingborough
  • South Northants
  • Northampton
