Developing and sharing good Intergenerational practice

In recognition of the UK Closing Ceremony for the European Year of Active Ageing and Intergenerational Solidarity hosted by the Older People's Commissioner for Wales, Pembrokeshire County Council are launching a website on behalf of their partners within the Age Friendly Communities programme to provide up to date information on all their activities and projects until March 2014.

Age Friendly Communities (AFC) is an Ireland - Wales INTERREG 4a funded project that is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Ireland Wales Programme 2007/13. It brings together the following five partners in Ireland and Wales to develop intergenerational strategies (local and trans-national) and to pilot activities to encourage community cohesion and social inclusion, positive images of others and the sharing of cultural heritage, living healthy lifestyles and lifelong learning.

  • Conwy County Borough Council (Wales - Lead Partner)
  • Ageing Well Network (Ireland)
    a not for profit organisation working with Kildare County Council
  • Isle of Anglesey County Council (Wales)
  • Kilkenny County Council (Ireland)
  • Pembrokeshire County Council (Wales)

With an ageing population across Europe it is becomingly increasingly important that younger and older members of our communities are able to live alongside and together. Intergenerational work is vital to this work as it encourages different generations to recognise each other's value through meaningful activities.

The project will improve understanding of effective intergenerational practice within the European Union, share learning and experience and bring partners together to improve knowledge and understanding of the work they are doing locally.
