Intergenerational Shared Spaces

Posted in: News on July 23, 2013

In 2003 the Welsh Assembly Government identified the development of intergenerational relationships as a core element of its Strategy for Older People. Since then the Welsh Government has been working with the Beth Johnson Foundation (in partnership with RSVP Cymru since 2009) to embed intergenerational work in its approach to promoting positive ageing and building strong communities. One area that has gained increasing interest has been that of how shared spaces can enable, or not, the development of positive relationships between the generations. This review aims to develop our understanding of the potential for such approaches and the factors that increase the likelihood of successful impact. The Review is particularly timely given the emphasis of the Ageing-Well in Wales programme on Age-Friendly Communities. Drawing on an international review of the literature the Review identifies the evidence for the approach and the contribution it can make to developing an All Age-Friendly Wales.The review is published by Generations Together Cymru.
