Local Networks: Renfrewshire & Inverclyde
Welcome to the Renfrewshire & Inverclyde Network
As many of you will know GWT supports over 30 local intergenerational networks across Scotland. Due to funding reductions and the word 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 31st May 2017 Renfrewshire and Inverclyde will merge to become one network. GWT asks members to kindly update their membership as some to the Inverclyde members may wish to go to Ayrshire meetings instead of Paisley, dependant 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 haven’t had a chance to see the short film from last years Intergenerational Quiz please do check it out.

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.
Renfrew Development Trust was awarded Stalled Spaces Scotland funding by Renfrewshire Council to deliver a multi-generational engagement project, working with local students and older residents to produce a public exhibition on the history of the town to be displayed on the side of an unused building.
