Adopt a Grandparent

Skye Harvey Community Connections – Organisation

RAAFA

Strong friendships bloomed as part of the Adopt a Grandparent program at AFME last year, which is running again this years. Residents at the estate were able to strike up firm friendships with students from All Saints College as part of an intergenerational initiative, which encourages companionship and connections between young and old. Year 6 students visited residents every Friday morning, where they were given topics to chat to the seniors about. The benefits of the partnership extended both ways, with students and residents genuinely enjoying their time together and forming strong bonds.
