    In particular the project will address:

    • A widening gulf of misunderstanding between different generations
    • The lack of opportunities for interaction, joint learning opportunities for different generations
    • The lack of confidence which is a barrier to learning for older people, older people feeling they are too old to learn, and have nothing to give to community
