Training Advice and Support

Find out what training advice and support is available to help you on your intergenerational journey

Linking Generations Northern Ireland believes that intergenerational connections thrive best when communities are empowered with the tools and expertise to grow and nourish them from within.
Through offering training, advice and support we strive to build capacity within communities and organisations to equip them with the skills, knowledge, and ideas necessary to undertake their own intergenerational activity.
