Bradford: an intergenerational district
In Bradford, The Linking Network facilitates intergenerational partnerships between schools, care homes and other older people’s settings. Find out more about our vision for making Bradford a truly intergenerational district and how to get involved.
Resources for Intergenerational Linking
We have a selection of thoughtful resources to support Intergenerational Linking including planning documents, activity ideas and videos.
Intergenerational Linking has great benefits for all generations. This includes improving older and younger people’s confidence, developing young people’s listening and leadership skills, generating understanding and respect between generations and reducing feelings of isolation and disconnection. This work also creates stronger community connections.
Our Intergenerational Network
The Linking Network supports a small network of organisations across England who deliver Intergenerational Linking in their local areas. We also share good intergenerational practice and learn from others involved in intergenerational practice.
