Intergen exists to address the problems of underperformance of pupils in schools, loneliness of older people and hostile intergenerational stereotypes. The organization currently works with 21 schools across five local authorities.
Intergen’s Vision is to make a positive contribution to the development of young people and the local community by bringing together schools and older people to work together in an enduring partnership. This intergenerational connection enriches opportunities to learn, raises aspiration and shares the untapped range of skills and knowledge that older citizens have to offer; its main purpose aimed at building stronger communities.
