Move & Groove

Move & Groove

Our Move & Groove project offers innovative training and projects which combine the worlds of music with movement. The pilot of this project is currently taking place in collaboration with Youth Sport Trust and South Bank University.

Move & Groove aims to tackle isolation, create community connection, empower staff and support in the physical and mental wellbeing of both the young and the old. The ultimate aim is for Move & Groove to become a regular national programme within care homes to accelerate the growth and impact of intergenerational practice and maximise the health and social benefits of young and old alike.Take a look at our Move & Groove site for more information about our internal projects.

Project Delivery & Benefits

Move & Groove is a 6-week programme that aims to empower teachers, care-givers and volunteers to give them the skills and confidence to deliver further workshops and sessions for people who they look after.

Through our sessions we are able to promote good mental health, support wellbeing and create a strong sense of community for those who we work with.

Training: We empower teachers, caregivers, and young leaders by equipping them with invaluable skills in utilising music and movement to support wellbeing and foster community connections. Through comprehensive training, they become adept at leveraging these creative tools to make a positive impact.

Project Delivery: Specialists in intergenerational music and physical activity are on hand to guide and support groups and activators, which include teachers, care staff, and young leaders. Over the course of a six-week project, participants put their newly acquired skills and tools into practice, implementing innovative approaches to enrich the lives of those they serve.
