Summer of Play

Intergenerational Play Project with Play Scotland

Most children and older people have experienced an extended enforced separation and many have experienced hardship through isolation and loss of social contact due to COVID-19. This intergenerational project aims to connect different generations, to re-establish or build new relationships between young and older people, to restore confidence, trust and promote good mental health.

Generations Working Together is pleased to work within communities to develop resources to link the generations, through play and storytelling. The project will adopt safe practice around current measures for groups using outdoors connections and virtual links, whilst also building a longer-term view of “in person, in same space, at same time”, when those opportunities are again possible.
