Local Networks: Tayside (Angus/Dundee/Perth/Kinross)

Welcome to the Tayside Network

Welcome to the Tayside network which covers Angus, Dundee and Perth & Kinross.

We organise 3-4 meetings each year moving around the different regions with each area hosting at least one meeting per year.

Local Volunteer Network Co-ordinator for Angus is Shonagh Ferguson.
Local Volunteer Network Co-ordinator for Dundee is Caitlyn Cooper-McCulloch.
Local Network Co-ordinator for Perth & Kinross is Donna McGlashan.

The Tayside Network have a closed online group for GWT members only. This gives a platform to communicate, share intergenerational projects and ideas between the quarterly meetings. The online communication tool is called Band. Band can be downloaded as an app for your phone or can also be accessed via the website, www.band.us. Whilst the setup of Band is in a very similar format to Facebook, it is completely private and groups cannot be searched for. Members can only join Band by receiving a code from the Local Network Coordinators.

Last meeting was in February held in Angus, meeting report attached, (copy and paste this web links into your browser): https://generationsworkingtogether.org/downloads/5e83598f20bae-Meeting%20Report.docx
