New three-year project for Jacksons Lane “TOGETHER” starts October 2017
Jacksons Lane is delighted to receive funding for three years from City Bridge Trust, the City of London Corporation’s charitable funder for an exciting, innovative new arts project for older people called “Together”.
“Together” will enable partnerships with Spare Tyre, Homes for Haringey, Haringey Council, Haynes Day Centre and Bridge Renewal Trust to bring arts activities to older people in Haringey.
Jacksons Lane will lead on the partnership and working with Homes for Haringey offer regular social activities in their supported housing schemes. These Broadway Brunches will offer great food, fun entertainment including singers, dancers and actors and a chance for participants to find out what services are available to them in their community.
Spare Tyre will lead on weekly creative workshops at the Haynes Day Centre, which is the hub in Haringey for older people with dementia. Spare Tyre will work with clients and carers affected by dementia to create art, theatre and performance, focusing on improving well-being.
The Bridge Renewal Trust will engage volunteers in the project, and Haringey Council will help with long-term evaluation. Our aim is that learning can be shared amongst health professionals, care workers and arts practitioners, so that more older people can benefit from this innovative way of working.
We look forward to keeping you updated on this page but if you work with older people in Haringey and want to find out more please contact our “Together” Coordinator Belle Benham:
