Downshall's Intergenerational Provision

About Intergenerational Provision

NELFT NHS Foundation Trust, Age UK Redbridge, Barking & Havering, Lions and Downshall Primary School are working in partnership to provide an Intergenerational provision that brings together older adults and young children to improve the quality of life and opportunities for both.

The provision was launched by Dr David Hinchcliffe, Consultant Psychiatrist at NELFT NHS Foundation Trust and is based at Downshall Primary School.

An activity centre for older adults is based at Downshall Primary School. There is a designated social lounge for participants and they also spend three half hour sessions in the Reception classes. 

Each term a programme of activities is arranged with a team comprising of school teachers and mental health professionals. The programme design team look across the school curriculum at the creative arts, music, language and communication and other elements to design projects and activities that will reinforce the learning and development of both pupils and participants.
