Meet the Team
Founders and Trustees
In 2019, she set up Ready Generations as a charity to encourage connections between people of different ages, particularly the very young and very old. Her ambition is to create potential for a refreshing community dynamic that really does put people first!
The emphasis on family in her Nursery led her to research and develop intergenerational practice that includes all ages and helps support healthy living for everyone. As part of her hectic schedule she also lectures on all aspects of early years practice at Edge Hill University, Ormskirk.
Following a person-centred care approach, Anna believes intergenerational activities can help to spark creativity, forge new relationships & develop feelings of warmth and community. Pioneering the evolution of interactive technology to make music, nature & the arts more accessible for people living with dementia and/or learning disabilities, she continues to champion the importance of inclusive resources & meaningful experiences in her role as a NAPA Special Adviser.
Anna indulges her love of folk & community with her ‘Hedgerow Tipple’ ceilidh/barn dance calling, coordinating local festivals & performing with the dance group Tappalachian. She lives in Herts with her family but is still a canny Northumbrian at heart.
