This initiative promotes and supports the development of intergenerational practice between the elderly and children by providing opportunities to bring different generations together, improving understanding and increasing mutual support. The vision is to achieve age friendly communities where everyone respects each other and has a voice and a role to play.
Intergenerational Practice provides structured opportunities to bring different generations together with the aim of improving understanding and increasing the mutual support they can provide. This contributes to the building of age friendly communities where everyone respects one another, has a voice and a role to play.
