Lynne Bennett started working with Linking Generations Northern Ireland (LGNI) in November 2012 as a Regional Development Worker.
She has been working with age groups ranging from pre-school to the older generation for the majority of her working life, in a variety of settings both in Northern Ireland and London. She holds a B.A. in Early Childhood Studies.
Lynne’s most recent position was with AGE North Down & Ards as a Safety of Seniors Project Officer, supporting older persons to keep safe and feel less isolated. This was achieved through a combination of daily telephone support calls and regular safety roadshows working in partnership with a broad range of other support organisations. She also worked with and supported local community groups, schools and churches in developing and delivering intergenerational initiatives over the past 4 years.
