School of Life

The next three years will see a set of exciting opportunities across the county of Northamptonshire

Thanks again to the Big Lottery Fund for supporting and recognising the projects previous successes.

School of life is a unique project which celebrates the skills, knowledge and experiences of all generations by engaging them in a wide range of activities that are new, fun and above all enjoyable.

The aim is to

  • Challenge stereotypes about young and older people
  • Create fabulous opportunities for exchanging skills
  • Create new networks and friendships
  • Encourage social inclusion and reduce isolation
  • Support groups to set up their own intergenerational projects

Activities that have proved to be a success in previous years such as fishing, cookery, arts and crafts, are just the tip of the iceberg. We are looking for many new ideas in addition to these favourites!

SNVB is working in partnership with Nene Valley Community Action and Voluntary Impact Northamptonshire to deliver the school of life project across large areas of the county.

Recently 3 School of life staff have been appointed to drive the projects forward in their respective areas one full time and two part time.

Pictured are:

The project is poised and ready to make an impact across South Northamptonshire with the support of previous volunteers, partners and participants.
