Intergenerational Forum: intergenerational practice in Arts & Wellbeing

Join us for a free online gathering, in partnership with McCarthy Stone Foundation, an informal space for arts & wellbeing providers to meet and share ideas around developing intergenerational practice in their services. 

The session will be led by Graeme Marsh, Head of Foundation at McCarthy Stone Foundation  – a Foundation which helps charities and organisations to change lives across the UK for the better while strengthening links between generations.

During the session, Graeme will share his perspective as a funder of intergenerational work, discussing:

  • what McCarthy Stone Foundation looks for when it comes to intergenerational applications
  • the current funding landscape for intergenerational work
  • charity finance and fundraising
  • with a Q&A to answer any of your queries around funding for intergenerational work

We are delighted that Graeme will be joining the Forum, and hugely appreciate him sharing his time, experience, and expertise with us.    

About the Intergenerational Forum:

This forum is an informal space for peer sharing and learning. We meet quarterly and anyone who is interested in developing their intergenerational practice is very welcome to join!

This forum is for arts and wellbeing providers who want to:

  • reflect on learnings from intergenerational projects
  • celebrate the successes
  • discuss the challenges
  • meet other people interested in sharing & developing intergenerational practice in their work
  • and discuss ideas for how we can create more opportunities for intergenerational connections going forward. 

Join us to share ideas, refine your intergenerational practices and meet other progressive people who are striving to innovate and excel in services for older and younger people.

About McCarthy Stone Foundation:

McCarthy Stone Foundation‘s vision is a society where older people are valued, connected and engaged with their communities. Their mission is to help grassroots charities and community groups support older people by engaging the McCarthy Stone Group, People, Customers, and Partners. They will achieve this through generations working together to ensure older people are included and valued, local charities are better resourced to deliver services, and community spaces can become hubs for intergenerational activity that bring a sense of belonging, independence, and connection.
