✍️🖍🖌We're looking forward to getting started on our new project funded by Arts Council of Northern Ireland. We will be running 4 intergenerational projects in 4 different council areas. Watch this space!
Something special happens when different age groups come together.
And it’s happening every day across the UK. Right under our noses. In our community centres and nurseries, care homes and churches we’re quietly closing the age gap, learning to understand each other and reducing loneliness.
That’s why we’re launching National Intergenerational Week. To celebrate those special moments and places where different generations come together for shared benefit. And hopefully, we can encourage a few people to get involved in their local projects too, who knows?
👥We are looking forward to running this information and network session next week in Mid Ulster. All are very welcome to come along and find out about our networks online and face-to-face. We have a revamped network section on our website that you can view here- https://linkinggenerationsni.com/networks/

🎆Happy New Year everybody! Hope you all had a lovely Christmas. We wanted to share a few things with you this morning.
➡️We are delighted to be a part of this TOY intergenerational book. Vicki wrote a chapter sharing about our work and how to build all-age friendly communities and services. (You can buy copies from the likes of Amazon & from Routledge Publishing Limited Taylor and Francis Group)
➡️We are also thrilled about what a great response we had to our Sing a Song for Santa competition- the stats are here below.
