HenPower helps set up hen keeping in older peoples care settings to offer fun and stimulating activities for residents, families and other independent living older people.  There are 4 HenPower projects already set up with a further 5 starting in February 2013.

Each care setting is supported by a small network of volunteers who either know about hens or enjoy looking after hens.  Each project also has weekly activities based around hen keeping which could include creative writing, digital photography, local history or other creative activities which the residents want to try out.

The project is managed by Equal Arts, a registered charity which aims to provide creative opportunities for older people.  The project is funded through BIG Lottery Fund Silver Dreams programme.
