Organisation aims and objectives

Generations Working Together is the nationally recognised centre of excellence supporting the development and integration of Intergenerational work. Our vision is to live in a Scotland where different generations are more connected, and everyone has the opportunity to build relationships that help to create a fairer society. By Intergenerational work we mean projects, activities or events where people of different generations work together on activities which remove and break down barriers between the generations. We have created a ‘Together is Better’ project at Jedburgh Grammar Campus, supporting young people in their learning.
