Local Networks: Orkney Isles
Welcome to the Orkney Isles Network
To reduce any risks of spreading Covid-19 the meeting planned for Friday 25th September 2020 and the training course planned for Wednesday 23rd September 2020 will be taking place online using Zoom.
There is keen interest from early years providers to connect with older people’s groups and care homes across the Orkney Isles to develop intergenerational relationships between the generations.
If you are from an older person’s organisations and would like to make contact please see the list of contacts for the schools, nurseries and childminders and a list of nurseries detailing individual activities and needs on the meeting page.
