Intergenerational working in North Ayrshire

Intergenerational working opportunities bring people of different ages together in purposeful, mutually beneficial activities. The intergenerational working workstream is a partnership group that was formed to further enhance intergenerational working opportunities across North Ayrshire.

The aim is to inspire partners across North Ayrshire and to provide them with the relevant examples and information needed for intergenerational working to take place.

An interactive map has been created to support partners around who can be contacted in their respective local area with regards to forming joint intergenerational working opportunities (please see link below).

If you would like to be included on this map – please get in contact with lisamorton@north-ayrshire.gov.uk
