Older generation helping child read

3G Social Clubs

Over nine years, The Cares Family has learned so much about the power of intergenerational relationships to improve individual lives and broader community connection. That’s why, in 2020, we ran a brand new project – ‘3G Social Clubs’.

The 3G clubs were built on The Cares Family’s work bringing older and younger people together to help three generations of people find connection and community – older people, new parents (who are themselves amongst the most isolated groups in the UK) and their very young children, who so often grow up without much older people in their lives.

Together, they enjoyed sing-alongs, puppet shows, dances and book parties – online an offline. In an extraordinary year, those parties across the ages brought fun, friendship and connection to people in deeply disconnecting times.

The full report of this beautiful work can be read here.

You can also see images of and read blogs about the 3G Social Clubs below.
