We currently host four thematic networks which are detailed below:
Together with our membership GWT host conversations around how intergenerational approaches can be used to address ageism. The network meets 3 times each year inviting guests from across the globe to share their expertise knowledge and experience to guide us in identifying ways on how we can reduce ageism for people of all ages especially the younger and older generations.

Care Home Network
GWT feel that so much intergenerational work happens in and around the provision of adult social care, that a network to specifically support managers, activity providers, staff, volunteers and the community partners they link with, is essential. The Care Home Network meets three times a year, twice online and one face to face, with the aim of building strong partnerships, networking, and sharing good practice through mutual support and discussion.

Intergenerational Housing, Places and Spaces
This network will bring interested parties together online using Zoom 3-4 times per year to share the latest information and resources from the field, facilitate peer learning, and grow the community of intergenerational housing, places and spaces. We will invite a range of experts to share their ideas and real life examples of intergenerational housing and shared sites and explore how the future of looking at housing and spaces can change to fit everyone's needs.

The idea behind the network is to share peer experience, knowledge and academic research. We will create discussion opportunities allowing you to consider new ideas and spark creativity as well as giving more accessible evidence to help you develop and grow the field of intergenerational practice. GWT invites practitioners and academics to get in touch to share news, plans and evidence about past, existing and future research studies, programmes and pilots.
