Inter-Generational

Caring Together_2LOPF has championed inter-generational practice, its mutual benefits to young and old, and power to create stronger communities. We believe that inter-generational work could help meet many of the city’s priorities and is particularly crucial at a time when cuts to public services are being made and generations are being pitched against each other for ever decreasing resources.

Leeds Generations United 

A new report highlighting intergenerational projects in the city

Leeds Older People’s Forum (LOPF) has published Leeds Generations United, which highlights some of the brilliant intergenerational work being done in Leeds

The report was officially launched on 25 September at the LOPF Celebration Event and it features eight intergenerational projects as well as one project’s vision for future intergenerational work.

The report highlights the benefits of each project as well as anything that didn’t work or that the project would have done differently in hindsight. There are also quotes from the participants about their experiences of being involved in the projects.
