Local Networks: Lanarkshire
Welcome to the Lanarkshire Network
As many of you will know GWT supports over 30 local intergenerational networks across Scotland. Due to funding reductions and the work load associated with covering so many networks it has been agreed that we should merge some of the networks allowing staff more development time for intergenerational support and training in the area.
As of the 31 August 2017 North and South Lanarkshire will merge to become one network. GWT asks members to kindly update their membership as some of the members may wish to go to other network meetings instead of North Lanarkshire, depending on where they live.
GWT apologies for an inconvenience caused and hopes to continue to run 3 meetings a year split between the two areas. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us by email at Office or by telephone at 0141 559 5024

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.
The ‘Care…about physical activity (CAPA) improvement programme’ will work with partnerships across Scotland to build the skills, knowledge and confidence of social care staff to enable those they care for to increase their levels of physical activity and move more often. Also, social care staff will discover ways to be more active themselves. The Care Inspectorate has been commissioned by the Scottish Government to lead the programme.
Beat the Street - a real life walking, cycling and running game for a whole community – is coming to North Lanarkshire in 2017 and community groups, schools and other interested teams are being encouraged to get involved.
