Linking the generations

One of the best things about this time of year is the way the generations come together. I’ve not visited many communities where people don’t want young and old to come together more often in the kind of partnership that we feel we’ve lost. Where we can grow mutual respect – and teach each other what we know. So, to help the Cabinet Office is today launching a £3 million fund to help recruit 20,000 volunteers to join projects that bring young and old together. We want the programme up and running early in 2009. Let me know if you’re ideas of things to do.
