Safeguarding Young People 21 Feb 2006

This is a project by an incorporated charity in London. The organisation will use the funding to extend their current intergenerational programme to older people in hospital who have little or no family or visitors and provide an opportunity for them to work with young people to take part in a variety of arts activities. This will bring young people aged 11-18 and older people over 60 together, build friendships, reduce isolation and help older people re-engage into the community.
The Children's Society will use the £563,581 grant to help young people who go missing from home as a result of conflict with parents, bullying or because they have been groomed by older men who pull them into dangerous, chaotic and unhealthy lifestyles.
