Together is an initiative set-up by Student.com, Sheffcare and Student Roost to provide an opportunity for local students and care home residents in Sheffield to connect, create friendships and build networks outside of their accommodation. The initiative has been launched as a direct response to research statistics showing that both students and the older generation in local communities are at risk of the negative impact of loneliness on mental health and wellbeing – with 70% of students experiencing loneliness at university. Students living in Student Roost accommodation in Sheffield will be invited to join the initiative to conduct intergenerational volunteering by being paired with a ‘buddy’ care home residents at one of the ten Sheffcare locations across the city. The result will be that both generations will share memories, advice and gain a positive experience.
