National Intergenerational Week

This year St Monica’s Trust has handed over the leadership of Generations Working Together, a Scottish-based charity that will deliver the campaign with UK partners; Linking Generations Northern Ireland, Bridging the Generations, Wales, and The Cares Family, England. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, generations are not currently able to come together, so the campaign has moved entirely online and will be promoted through the hashtag #IntergenerationalWeek.  

You can find more information on our website 

If you are part of an organisation, we are asking you to support us by sending your logo which we will add to our website. If you could please email this to Denise@generationsworkingtogether.org . The logo on our page will mean that you support intergenerational practice and generations connecting together, be it online or in person (when this is safe). We are relying on your help this year as the campaign is entirely online and no gatherings are taking place.   

If you have any questions please let me know. Please use the hashtag  #IntergenerationalWeek to share your stories, ideas, and projects.
