The Guide was produced as part of the Global Campaign to Combat Ageism and builds on evidence in the Global report on ageism that interventions for intergenerational contact is one of three strategies that have been proven to work in addressing ageism, together with policy and law and educational interventions.
We are very proud that our Director Vicki Titterington played a part in the development of this guide alongside colleagues Alison Clyde CEO of Generations Working Together and Ali Somers (researcher & academic).
As intergenerational practitioners we know that bringing generations together and creating mutually beneficial relationships positively addresses Ageism and supports the creation of a truly Age-friendly society. We want to change the narrative on intergenerational practice from something that is nice to do to an essential practice. We advocate that embracing intergenerational approaches offers the opportunity to achieve multiple outcomes, utilises community assets and adds value to existing activity.
