Orkney Isles

Welcome to the Orkney Isles Network

After a successful face-to-face network meeting held in May 2022 the first in over two years, Alison will be back in Kirkwall for another catch up on Tuesday 4th October. We are also delighted to announce that Lorraine George will deliver our one day Intergenerational Training Course for Trainers and Practitioners on Tuesday the 1st November.

If you would like to know more about intergenerational work on the Isles you can speak with Pamela Scott who has recently taken on the role as GWT’s volunteer coordinator for the Isles. Pamela will be working closely with Alison and members from across the Isles to raise awareness of the benefits of intergenerational work and of GWT. Pamela can be contacted on the link below.

The agenda will be circulated nearer the time however if you have anything you which to highlight or share at the meeting then please do get in touch.

Don’t forget that GWT have many more events and sessions programmed throughout the year, check out our events page and keep an eye out for our thematic networks, events and training programme detailed in our e news bulletin.
