We work closely with many local and national organisations including the following:
Age Scotland is the leading charity for all older people in Scotland. They campaign, research and fundraise to make sure they build a better life for everyone in later life.
The Campaign to End Loneliness believes that nobody who wants company should be without it.
This initiative promotes and supports the development of Intergenerational Practice across the region providing opportunities for older and younger people to meet and learn from each other.
Food for Life Get Togethers is a new programme, created to transform our food culture, unite communities, create meaningful relationships between generations and unlock the power of good food for our physical and mental health and wellbeing. Working with six partners including GWT, the project will give communities the chance to come together through special events and social hubs that promote growing, cooking and eating healthy food.
Over the past few years GWT has built a strong working relationships with Dr. Mariano Sánchez, Macrosad Chair in Intergenerational Studies at the University of Granada, Spain. Together we deliver a six week online Intergenerational training course for anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of intergenerational work, its purpose, impact and practical application to enable them to apply this within their own work.
