Mind the Gap

MIND THE GAP

Mind the Gap/Cofiwch y Bwlch is a project by Arts4Wellbeing that aims to build links between older people who either live in care homes, extra care facilities or who live in their own home but have become isolated, with younger people, either through linking with schools or activity groups like scouts, young farmers or other youth groups.

This project will benefit the whole community in many ways including older people who feel isolated and have lost their sense of purpose will become more active and connected to the community, their knowledge and lived experience will be shared and passed on to a younger generation, and younger people will have the opportunity to learn informally and in an interesting way from people with real lived experience.

Mind the Gap also provides the opportunity to raise awareness about any anxiety that comes from interacting together across different generations, this anxiety can then be reduced, which will then see generations work together and encourage communities to become more connected and resilient. People will not only have the opportunity to engage with new people but also to reconnect with people that they have lost contact with.
