Ayrshire Intergenerational Network Meeting

Thursday 19th May 2022, 1:30pm - 3:30pm
CLASP Resource Centre 10 Alexander Place Stevenston KA20 3AE

Come along and join in our first face to face meeting with Ayrshire & Arran network for a long time. We will have lots to talk about and share. There is so much happening in our communities and intergenerational relationships are important. We hope that the network can share ideas and look at how we can view our world through an intergenerational lens by looking at ageism toward younger an older people whilst exploring the difference that intergenerational work can make to individuals and communities. An agenda will be available soon. But most of all I hope that we can have some fun and discover new ways of connecting and revisit old ways too.

Exploring the possibilities of intergenerational communities / activities / ideas
Intergenerational relationships and how they are good for us. We have lots to explore in our local communities to ask questions about intergenerational work and relationships. We hope that you can join us in a conversation looking to build an intergenerational nation. Ask yourself a couple of questions :

1. What intergenerational activities are going on where you live or work?
2. Are younger people and older people naturally included in the life of your local area?
3. Does your community of older and younger generations have skills, knowledge or attributes that they can share with each other?
4. What mutual interests could lead to informal intergenerational meet-ups, joint activities, or wider community projects?

We will be joined by Martin Quigley – Community Network Developer, The Eden Project

“Are you looking for something you could do to bring people together for a celebration?

With so many reasons in the calendar to get together and celebrate this coming June, including the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, Volunteers Week, Carers Week, Loneliness Awareness Week, Small Charities Week, Thank You Day and so many more, we’re calling June the Month of Community! What’s more, we’re encouraging and supporting people to use the nationwide ‘The Big Lunch’ as the way to invite their neighbours, friends, groups, colleagues and anybody else to come together that month, whatever your reason!

Millions of people take part in The Big Lunch every year – from two people sharing a cuppa and a cake in the garden, to a hundred people having a street party – they’re all Big Lunches because the ‘Big’ thing is the number of people who join in throughout Scotland”.
