New Local Opportunity
Glasgow Caledonian University Student’s Association have created a great opportunity to link student volunteers with local organisations and communities. The ‘Give it a Go’ programme offer charities and organisations the opportunity to host an introductory activity, whereby students can attend and learn more about your work. As a result, new opportunities for volunteering and partnerships will present themselves!
This could work for existing intergenerational projects, or could actively be used to generate new intergenerational relationships between students and existing programme beneficiaries.

Spread Christmas cheer this year
24 November 2022
For many, it’s a busy time of year, and for some it can feel quite lonely. Taking time to chat with neighbours over mince pies, or enjoying a shared meal is a great way to keep connected, which is why Eden are launching The Big Lunch at Christmas this year. Its a good time to bring generations together too.
