Local Network

New local networks Generations Working Together (GWT) is supporting and creating new local intergenerational networks throughout Scotland, which are designed to create networking opportunities for organisations and groups who would like to be kept up to date with what's happening in the local area; along with opportunities to link with other key partners in delivering current and future intergenerational activities. In addition they will hear what GWT is planning to do nationally, and how they can have an input in our policies and strategies.
