Generations Working Together is a national charity that aims to grow intergenerational projects and spaces. We are based in the historic Brunswick House building on 51 Wilson Street in Merchant City, Glasgow and through our building, we encourage the creation of other intergenerational spaces. In our digital tour, you will see and hear from organisers and intergenerational leaders and how their spaces and projects have made a difference across Scotland. We have also talked to two projects that are currently converting two buildings into intergenerational spaces. This video is a call for more intergenerational community spaces and why they are important.

Generations Working Together is the nationally recognised centre of excellence supporting the development and integration of intergenerational work across Scotland.
We believe that intergenerational work has a unique and significant contribution to make to the recovery process and that our expertise in this arena places GWT in a strong position to support the development of policy and practice.
In 2020 we launched our call for Scotland to become the first intergenerational nation, coinciding with the Scottish Government Election in 2021. The manifesto identifies three areas and fifteen specific calls for action that we believe the Scottish Government elected for 2021 – 2026, and all elected representatives should focus on to help ensure that relationships between generations are strengthened and Scotland becomes more connected and inclusive.
