Case Studies

  • Old’s Cool

    It was important to run this project due to the high number of young people leaving school in the local Leith area without a positive destination in employment, education or training. Tensions in the local community between both young and older people encouraged us to take an intergenerational approach.

  • Anam Cara

    Anam Cara's intergenerational project aims to tackle stereotypes around dementia and to connect older people and young children for the benefit of both age groups.

  • Befriending Caithness intergenerational link

    Approached by the local hospital and care home, Befriending Caithness was asked if they could fill the gap that currently exists within the community. More and more older people are being kept in hospital or a care home, and whilst in residence their relatives find it difficult to visit due to lack of transport, mobility or their own ill health. The longer the elderly person stays in the hospital the more isolated and lonely they become.
