TOY- PLUS: 2nd Transnational Meeting, Athens, Greece 18-19 September, 2017

October 10, 2017

The seven organisations, which includes BJF and our colleagues LGNI, involved in the TOY-PLUS project had an eventful meeting in Athens. This project, which began almost a year ago is being coordinated by ICDI and is being funded by the European Commission.  The Athens meeting was hosted by Hellenic Open University, the Greek partner in TOY-PLUS.
 First on the meeting agenda was to agree on the six dimensions of quality which will form the basis of the TOY Quality Stamp.  It involves a supported self-assessment process which will allow services and organisations to assess and improve intergenerational practice involving young children and older adults. 
The six dimensions are: 1) Interaction with (in) the community, 2) Social inclusion and wellbeing, 3) Learning environment, 4) Professional development and teamwork, 5) Monitoring and evaluation, 6) Sustainability. Over the coming weeks and months we will be recruiting services interesting in being involved in the process.
