Visit to South London

The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Social Integration visited the first intergenerational nursery based at a care home in the UK, Apples and Honey Nightingale, to learn about how it is fostering stronger connections between the young and old.

The APPG’s Chair, Chuka Umunna MP, met with the nursery and care home’s staff, and participated in Jewish Shabbat and Sukkot celebrations. The nursery organises daily intergenerational activities for the care home residents and nursery children, including a baby and toddler group, art and music, and religious activities and ceremonies. The visit provided a great opportunity for the APPG to learn about the benefits that intergenerational activities bring to people of different generations, and how these can be funded and supported in care home settings.
