GWT and partners celebrate after receiving £499,600 for a multi-year project
Generations Working Together is delighted to announce that we have been awarded funding from The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK, for an exciting new partnership project launching in early 2023. Over the next 2.5 years, the Creating Intergenerational Communities project will see Generations Working Together partnering with Apples and Honey Nightingale in London and Linking Generations Northern Ireland to develop a model for embedding intergenerational approaches within our communities.
This will involve grassroots activities with the training and upskilling of communities across Scotland, England, and Northern Ireland. The programme will introduce and promote new quality standards for intergenerational activities, providing confidence and ensuring sustainability. These new quality standards will be embedded through the recognition of Intergenerational Hubs, promoting cohesion within and across our communities.
The partnership is recruiting four key staff members to support communities across the three countries. Please consult our websites for news of these opportunities in the coming days.
This project has been made possible thanks to a £499,600 award from The National Lottery Community Fund, as part of the Bringing People Together funding programme which aims to build stronger connections across communities in the UK.
The National Lottery Community Fund distributes money raised by National Lottery players, who raise £30 million each week for good causes across the UK.
