Local Networks: Research
Our aim is to connect practitioners, policy makers, academics and researchers who are actively or interested in investigating the impact of intergenerational work/relationships on both younger and older aged participants to come together to discuss and explore the following:
- An overview of research studies conducted to date- and the strengths and weaknesses of this work (identifying gaps in the knowledge produced to date).
- Where demand for new research is coming from – the public sector and policy makers, consumers, practitioners, investors? Are there specific fields within intergenerational research that should be prioritised?
- Potential for research project development at multiple sites across the UK and collaboration further afield.
- Discussion of methodologies and potential project ideas – is there an appetite to attempt to run a multi-site intergenerational impact assessment project? If so, what might that look like?
Research Local Network News
GWT has launched a new Plan, which sets the strategic direction for the next five years.
A new resource from GWT sharing ideas on how to connect the different generations.
GWT is delighted to report that, with the Scottish Government’s backing, we are upscaling our activities and will engage with network members and local communities, finding practical ways to reconnect younger and older generations through technology, telephones, radio, television and paper.
