SPIRIT OF YOUTH

Spirit of Youth tackles social isolation in the elderly, by taking primary school children into a local residential care home.

ABOUT

Spirit of Youth provides a unique opportunity for the young and old to form new bonds and relationships, as they work towards a common-goal. Our participants share their own experiences and stories, as they convert Shakespeare’s words into their own. The elderly and the children alike are able to challenge and enjoy themselves in a risk-free environment

“It was so good to see the young children working alongside the residents. Although my mother has difficulty in remembering sometimes, she found it good to have something to work towards.” Resident's daughter.

Over the course of ten weeks, the children and adults work together to create a 15-20 minute version of a Shakespeare play which is then be performed to family, friends and the wider community.
