Young Bristol are delighted to announce we have been granted the OVO Gives Back Award to support more intergenerational projects across our Community Club network.
As voted for by OVO staff, the funding enables the opportunity to build upon our highly successful pilot which we have been working on over the last year. The Inter Generational Project at our Community Club in Ashton Vale involved a core group of between 25-30 older people who regularly attend our Ashton Vale Club on a Tuesday morning. Loneliness and isolation amongst young people is equally prevalent amongst older people. Bringing the different generations together is very powerful and all helps to make stronger, safer and joined up Communities.
OVO are an award winning Energy Supplier based in Bristol who proudly support education & development for communities in need. We would like to thank everyone at OVO who took the time to vote for our project, it really allows us to make a difference in the local communities in which we work. We kick this off on Sunday 20th August when volunteers from OVO help transform the outside space at Hartcliffe Club for Young People.
We look forward to further community projects as we move in to the Autumn. If you would like to find out more about our plans please sign up to our quarterly e-newsletter or contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
