Bridging the Generation Gap

This report from YouthLink Scotland, details the journey of four intergenerational pilots, showing that bringing the experiences and skills of adults together with the energy and freshness of young people was a positive force in all of the areas involved in the pilots.

Bringing generations together in four different areas of Scotland represented a new approach to creating communities that nurture and support young people.

Instead of increasing division and disagreement, intergenerational work such as this promises to bring generations together and to reconnect young people and their communities by building on mutual interests and creating new ways of relating and working together to build communities where young people and adults together feel safe and supported.
