Generations Working Together are delighted to be one of the recipients of the Community Knowledge Fund. 

Funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), and delivered by The Young Foundation, the Community Knowledge Fund supports grassroots community groups and organisations across the UK to find new solutions to local and national challenges by uncovering knowledge and turning great ideas into action. Our project explores intergenerational solutions to community safety.

The project will run till September 2024. A stakeholder event will take place on 18 September, inviting interested stakeholders along to offer insight into the research action project. A final report and film will be produced.

Putting community at the heart of research

Working with community groups across Glasgow, this research puts communities right at the heart of the research. 

The Fund aims to test innovative methods and approaches for community-led research and knowledge creation. By engaging with groups who have often been left out of formal research practices, The Community Knowledge Fund also aims to help make research and innovation more accessible for diverse and under-represented communities. This aims to shift the way community-led research and innovation is valued, building an increased appetite for it across the wider sector.  

Phase 2: Our Co-investigators

Working with Garnethill multicultural centre, Yoker resource centre’s group, Time well spent, Knightswood active seniors, The Prince’s Trust at Clyde College, Govan Craft Cafe and community artists, the groups, through various mediums, are exploring community safety and intergenerational relationships in their own neighbourhoods across Glasgow.
