Welcome to the Caithness and Sutherland Network

Bella from GWT visited Wick in October and met with a few interested people who are keen to make partnerships with others around intergenerational practice. We are planning network meetings in 2023 in Wick and Thurso and hope that people can spread the word to come along and take part in activities, learn about ideas, share networking time and Bella will bring along resources that you may be able to use in your IG practice. We are keen to deliver training in the area too but only when we know that there is an interest. If you ahve any iodeas and would like naything on the agenda for future meetings that relates to local or national intergenerational work please let Bella know. She can be contacted by email or telephone 07927550730
