Come Eat Together demonstrates how older people have a wealth of skills and experience that can help others. The fact that these older volunteers are helping their peers also means they are able to understand what’s needed and to identify gaps in provision. They themselves have greater confidence as a result of their efforts and new skills.
There are some unique, creative aspects that add extra value, too, such as the provisions of a “gadget library” which is specialist cookery equipment that older people can try before they buy. It has also designed an innovative board game to support the training course, which is enabling older people to learn in a fun and interactive way.
