Welcome to the East Renfrewshire Network
Please note that the network meeting that was planned for 11th May 2017 has been postponed but a new date and location will be soon confirmed.
A Big Thank You to everybody who attended our conference on Wednesday 8th of March 2017 to Stirling Court Hotel. For those who couldn’t attend, please feel free to watch here the Highlights of the Conference 2017
Congratulations to one of East Renfrewshire’s intergenerational projects “T in the Street”, a project from Williamwood High School & The Richmond Fellowship Scotland, who were the winner of the category Established Intergenerational Projects. Congratulations to Nicola Mortimer, Lorraine Bruce and Gillian McDonald who initiated and ran the project. Well done to all the young and older people involved in this fantastic project.
If you need support in developing an intergenerational idea or have an existing intergenerational activity/project you’d like to showcase please get in touch with Sorina our Local Network Development Officer.

Impact Arts are runing Craft Café workshops in Paisley, Johnstone and Barrhead for people over the age of 60. These are relaxed, friendly and creative sessions to socialise and pick up skills from an artist-in-residence.
These events will give services an opportunity to link with and learn from others taking part, share good practice and find out how to overcome barriers to enable those in their care to move more, and more often.
This October we will be celebrating Grandparent's Day and International Day of Older Persons. To mark this occasion we would like to share photos and stories from and about grandparents. Please send these over and share our article.
