Poems in Homes is a partnership between the National Centre for Writing and Age UK, offering residents in care settings and 16- to- 25-year-olds an opportunity to explore poetry and writing together through discussion and reminiscence work. The visiting poet (young person) will spend a minimum of three sessions in a care setting with residents, and then write an original ‘poem for the home’ which will be printed and given to the care setting as a gift.

We are no longer accepting applications for this programme, as it is now full. If you would like to join the waiting list, please contact Hannah Garrard on hannah.g@nationalcentreforwriting.org.uk
