Partnership work promotes power of music to bridge gap between generations

Elderly residents from Keswick Care Home and children aged 10 and 11 from Eastwick School in Bookham are bridging the gap between generations, using music making to inspire confidence and tackle loneliness, anxiety and isolation.

Sinead Mooney, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Adults, said: “This is such a heart-warming scheme which has brought so many benefits both to residents at Keswick and the schoolchildren who have taken part so enthusiastically, and I’d like to thank all who made it happen.  

“This project is a first for Surrey and has the potential to be extended more widely for the benefit of social care and education across the county, helping to bridge generations and strengthen communities.”
