Mutual respect

LinkAge has been featured in the Bank of Ireland’s ‘Inspiring Partnership’ video series.

Our Intergenerational work has been highlighted as one of several unique partnerships from around the world, whose work is helping to make a difference to people’s lives.

Our video ‘Mutual Respect’ sees LinkAge participant Betty and volunteer Sophie, sharing skills and knowledge in one of our Intergenerational IT classes. Over tea and biscuits, older people have the opportunity to ask tech-related questions about their tablets, phones or cameras, to local younger people.

Working side by side, the video shows Sophie and Betty sharing life skills and experiences, all whilst learning mutual respect.

Betty says, “Everybody is an individual and they all have life experiences that may be beneficial to you at your age.”
