What's On

Open Arms Intergenerational Group

3.30pm - 5.00pm

Open Arms Intergenerational Group

A welcoming, lively group full of energy, cake and smiles!

Run in conjunction with the Hexham Youth Initiative, our Open Arms Intergenerational Group provides a fabulous opportunity for younger and older people to socialise regularly. Members often spend time together chatting; sharing skills, like computing or gardening; or working together on projects. One thing is for sure, it’s always lively, full of energy, cake and smiles!

Open Arms is supported by funding from Social Enterprise Support Fund, distributed by Resonance. This funding has helped us to keep the group running and free to all. Thanks to National Lottery players for making this possible.

The Social Enterprise Support Fund provides vital and rapid financial support to help social enterprises in England focussed on supporting their communities to recover from the pandemic. The Social Enterprise Support Fund is a two-year project, delivered by Big Issue Invest, Key Fund, Resonance, the School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) and UnLtd, in partnership with The National Lottery Community Fund, and will jointly deliver £18million in grants.

How much does it cost?

Free for all members.
This is a community supported project funded through the Hexham Community Centre. To join the group, please contact us
