Silver Fox Community
The WHO recommends Volunteering as a key measure in combating Elder Financial Abuse and Domestic Violence. Where isolation takes hold so to does Abuse.
The Silver Fox is a Positive Ageing initiative bringing remarkable Seniors into classrooms to share knowledge and experiences through reading and 'oral history' activities. In building mutual respect across generations and an inclusive society our communities grow connections often lost in modern society.
Seniors are provided purposeful activities whilst students are equipped with emotional and social learning skills which have known benefits to their education.
Importantly isolation, loneliness and issues of mobility are countered whilst Seniors enjoy a better sense of wellbeing and health.
