National Citizen Service (June 2014)

dancingWe are gearing up for another summer packed with National Citizen Service activities. Young people from across County Durham will soon be gathering and planning how they will make an impact on their communities with many projects working towards an intergenerational approach and working to benefit local older people.

 

Last year we worked with various groups of young people to organise a 1940’s Tea Party, build raised beds in a care home garden and plant vegetables and flowers with the residents, raise funds for a local residential home and host a community event for local older and young people.
