Cross Party Group

Intergenerational Solidarity

Description

Cross-party Group on Intergenerational Solidarity

 

Purpose

 

To promote solidarity and understanding between generations, including projects that bring younger and older generations together, and to explore evidence and develop policy proposals that would benefit both younger and older generations. 

 

To help older and younger generations overcome social isolation and loneliness caused by the Covid19 pandemic.

 

The most commonly cited definition when referring to intergenerational practice in the field is as follows:

“Intergenerational practice aims to bring people together in purposeful, mutually beneficial activities which promote greater understanding and respect between generations and contributes to building more cohesive communities. Intergenerational practice is inclusive, building on the positive resources that the young and old have to offer each other and those around them”

(Centre for Intergenerational Practice: Beth Johnson Foundation, 2001)
