GWT has secured funding from the National Lottery Community Fund for an exciting new project that aims to embed intergenerational practice across Scotland, England, and Northern Ireland. From January 2023, we will work in partnership with Apples and Honey Nightingale in London and Linking Generations Northern Ireland, with Development Officers in each country working collaboratively to deliver training, promote new quality standards, and recognise Intergenerational Hubs in communities across the UK.

This role will focus on building partnerships, delivering intergenerational training, creating, and piloting a set of new quality standards, and supporting the recognition of new Intergenerational hubs across three areas of Scotland (areas being considered include Shetland/Orkney, Ayrshire, and Lothians however this could change).

GWT is the nationally recognised centre of excellence supporting the development and integration of intergenerational work across Scotland. GWT’s vision is to live in a Scotland where different generations are more connected, and everyone has the opportunity to build relationships that help to create a fairer society. By intergenerational practice we mean projects, activities, or events where people of different generations who might not otherwise meet each other work together in positive and creative ways.
