Local Networks: Orkney Isles
Welcome to the Orkney Isles Network
Please note that due to the Coronavirus the meeting planned for Tuesday 24th March has been postponed to Tuesday 22nd September 2020 and the training course initially scheduled for Wednesday 25th March has been moved to Wednesday 23rd September 2020. If the situation does not settle by this time we shall change the face to face meeting/training to online sessions using Zoom. Zoom is a video conferencing tool which is very easy to use at home on your own laptop/computer.
Hopefully we shall be able to return and catch up face to face. Any questions please contact Alison.
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.
Orkney Isles 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.
