Mixing with older people is good for the young

This report talks about the benefits to the young of mixing with older people.

It can boost children's skills, confidence and opportunities while tackling ageism and loneliness, the report says.

It calls on every nursery and school, every children’s and young people’s organisation and every local authority to link with older people’s care and housing providers, volunteers and organisations.
