New tools for measuring impact of intergenerational work

The World Health Organisation has published two relevant evidence and gap maps on reducing social isolation and loneliness, which would prove useful to intergenerational practitioners seeking evidence to boost funding bids.

The short video on the website explains clearly how to read and use the maps.

Additionally, one produced by University of Exeter specifically on non familial intergenerational interventions and their impact on the social and mental wellbeing of younger and older people highlights different pieces of research and impact of a range of activities.
