Year 10 Health and Social Care students have embarked on a project with Magic Me, a charity using arts and creative activities to bring generations together and help increase individuals’ confidence and wellbeing, while building connections across different faiths, cultures and backgrounds.

This enriching opportunity connects our young people with service users of a local residential care home, and involves using creative flair to devise a character to collaborate, connect and converse with the older people.

The students can see first hand all their knowledge about human growth and development applied in real life, opening their eyes to the importance of social care in practice; supporting both the physical health and emotional needs of an individual.
