Rebuilding relationships and connections in response to COVID-19

Rebuilding relationships and connections in response to COVID-19

Even in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, everyone at Generations Working Together (GWT) is committed to maintaining and developing the powerful friendships and connections built across Scotland through intergenerational activities and projects. We are delighted to report that, with the Scottish Government’s backing, we are upscaling our activities and will engage with network members and local communities, finding practical ways to reconnect younger and older generations through technology, telephones, radio, television and paper.

Even when lockdown begins to ease, we know that social distancing may last for some considerable time. To help reconnect, we will share a directory of safe, simple ideas and activities for intergenerational work. There will be free online training for volunteers and organisations working to help socially isolated and vulnerable members of our community and we will provide additional support to care homes.

To find out more about how to connect younger and older generations and to plan activities, become a member, and join one of our 18 local intergenerational networks, membership is free.
