Local Networks: Scottish Borders
Welcome to the Scottish Borders Network
Our next intergenerational network meeting will take place on Monday 26th March 2018, 10:30am – 12:30pm at The Salvation Army, 6 Croft Road in Hawick.
We are still looking for a local intergenerational project who would like to come along to the meeting to share their experiences of intergenerational work with the members. We are also planning to set up an intergenerational training course in the Borders either in the Spring or Autumn and wondered if anyone had a venue which we could use which would cater up to 20 people? If anyone can give a free venue we would offer a free training place as payment.
Alison Clyde, our National Development Manager is looking to speak with someone who knows more about the Jedburgh Intergenerational Campus. If you know someone or have an answer to the above queries then please email Alison.
