Age Related

HenPower is an inspiring project working with older people equipping them with the skills and knowledge to become henkeepers in residential and dementia care settings.

HenPower's innovative approach improves well being and reduces depression and loneliness amongst older people.

In 2014 HenPower aims to work across the North East, as well as develop 'distance learning partners' with care homes across England. HenPower uses hens as a catalyst for engaging older people in a range of arts based activities from painting and photography, movement and cookery to film making and oral history.

We hope over the next few years to henspire many more older people to become hengaged and henpowered at a time when most people are slowing down and not stepping into wellies!

We are also fortunate that we have supporters who provide us with images for our very own HenPower Gallery here on DoodleDoo. Click here to go and take a look. Buying from our gallery provides additional royalties - thank you!


We'd love to hear from anyone who would like to work with us as a patron - do contact us. For a bit more information this is what we are all about:
