Become a Friend of Magic Me
Did you know we are living in an ageing society?
3.6 million people aged 65 say television is their main form of company and more than 1 in 3 people aged 75 and over say their feelings of loneliness is out of their control.
Whatever our age, two things that really affect our health and wellbeing are social connectedness and having control over our own lives. Magic Me offers both.
Through our intergenerational projects older people living alone gain a new sense of purpose, encouraging better well-being. Children gain new skills and social confidence. Connections with the local community is vital to people who are lonely. Both generations work together and they find, or rediscover, a sense of purpose and a status as collaborators and citizens.
