What we do?
Generations Working Together provides information, delivers support and encourages involvement to benefit all of Scotland’s generations, by working, learning, volunteering and living together.
That all generations in Scotland will work together to create a better and fairer country for all.
Our equality and cohesion fund project outcomes for July 2016 – June 2017 include:
- Organisations, including those working with protected characteristics age, disability & race develop knowledge, understanding and projects that use intergenerational approaches to challenge ageism and discrimination and promote the inclusion of people from diverse backgrounds.
- People within protected characteristics groups (age, disability and race) experience a reduction in discrimination, loneliness and isolation and barriers to connecting to other generations. They are more included in their communities and acknowledged for their contributions.
- National organisations, local authorities, national public agencies and organisations have an increased awareness, adopt and embed intergenerational approaches to address the challenges of our ageing society and promote positive images of all older and younger people
Organisational outcomes for 2015-2020
- Young and older people are more respected and included in their communities and as consequence enjoy enhanced health and wellbeing.
- People at local, regional and national levels understand intergenerational approaches and integrate this into practice and policy to create positive change.
- GWT is the nationally recognised centre of excellence, supporting the integration of intergenerational work across Scotland.
