PLAYSCHEME - Winchester

Play For The Young and The Young At Heart!

The intergenerational playscheme is a unique holiday club where the young and the young at heart join together for an afternoon of important social interaction.

The Phoebe School playscheme is an opportunity for children and senior citizens to engage in childhood activities together, create opportunities for children to further develop their skills, parents to create a local peer support network and provide isolated residents vital community interaction.

Research suggests that intergenerational playschemes improve outcomes and quality of life for older, particularly those experiencing isolation/loneliness, dementia or disengagement from the community.

Parents and individuals interested in taking part in the programme can contact the Phoebe School UK playscheme co-ordinator via or Telephone 075 7031 0828
