Intergenerational projects for the LGBT community: A toolkit to inspire and inform
October 2011 | The Intergenerational Longevity Centre
“"Obviously, intergenerational projects cannot solve all the problems facing older and younger members of the LGBT community. However given that effective support seems to be missing for so many older and younger LGBT individuals, building bridges between the generations as a mechanism for developing new forms of support and solidarity appears to make sense."”
This toolkit, developed in the UK, is designed to provide the building blocks to understand the importance and potential of intergenerational working for the LGBT community, but also, provide providers with the foundations to run a project on their own. Aimed at practitioners, policy makers and educators, the toolkit not only includes essential information on this aspect of intergenerational practice but offers a practical framework to help plan your activities in this field.
