The country lead for Australia is The Australian Institute for Intergenerational Practice Limited (AIIP), a charity founded by Emeritus Professor Anneke Fitzgerald in 2021. Anneke is a leading researcher in Australia in intergenerational practice and was involved in the pre and post-production of the well loved ABC television series “Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds”. 

The overall purpose of the Australian Institute for Intergenerational Practice is to re-connect communities through the development, implementation and evaluation of intergenerational programs. Their long-term vision is for intergenerational interactions and programs to be a normal part of our everyday life in both formal and informal settings.
