Lively brings young and older people together to support each other
What we do
We believe that young and older people have so much to offer each other, and so much to gain from connecting.
We exist to spark the connection.
We train and employ young people who are looking for a job
Connect them with older people who need a hand with technology
And enable great exchanges to happen
How We Work
We believe in a world where all young and older people feel valued, included and supported in our community. Here’s how we make that happen in the Lively network.
It’s not just about young people helping older people, or older people helping the young – all our activities are designed to spark meaningful, mutual exchanges of skills, knowledge, experience and perspectives between young and older members of our community.
Training and Support
We provide specially designed training and induction to all our young employees, as well as close ongoing support, to make sure that the Lively experience is a positive and rewarding one for everyone involved.
Safety and Care
We take the safety and security of our young and older community members very seriously, and ensure that appropriate safety measures are implemented across all of our programs and activities.
Feedback and Innovation
We actively engage young and older people in designing the Lively experience, and in continuously identifying new activities, services and supports that they can help each other with.
Tech, Tea and Tales at the Victorian Seniors Festival
At this year’s Victorian Seniors Festival, we were thrilled to partner with StoryPod to launch Tech, Tea and Tales – a series of pop-up technology help and story sharing events, employing ten young jobseekers to teach older people about technology, as well as recording their life stories and experiences on film.
