NI Creating Intergenerational Communities Pilots Announced!

15 November 2023

We are delighted to announce who our intergenerational pilot settings are from across Northern Ireland!

These new partnerships will be taking part in our 'Creating Intergenerational Communities' project, who LGNI are delivering with their partners in Generations Working Together, Scotland and Apples & Honey Nightingale, London.

This has been made possible through funding received from the National Lottery Community Fund and will continue until July 2025.

Through delivering intergenerational activities with both the children and older people from both settings, these pilots will trial a newly created set of quality indicators that can be used to evaluate their own intergenerational practice, allowing facilitators to monitor and reflect on the quality of their activities.

They include:

The Magic Roundabout Childcare Centre & Millcroft Care Home, Enniskillen

Red Brick House Nursery & Oakmont Care Home, Bangor

The Beeches Day Nursery & The Beeches Nursing Home, Craigavon

Plumbridge SureStart & The Plum Club, Plumbridge

Little Stars Pre School & Beechvale Nursing Home, Downpatrick & Killinchy

Hollypark Private Pre School & Lisnisky Care Home, Portadown

We can't wait to watch these fabulous relationships unfold as they develop and grow over the coming months!
