This report is one of a series of guides produced by the Beth Johnson Foundation for practitioners and others either involved or interested in intergenerational work.
This guide is intended to help practitioners to develop an intergenerational approach to community development and to understand some of the key issues that need to be considered in developing effective practice.
The guide is divided in to two sections. The first explores the general principles of a community development approach with specific relevance to intergenerational practice. The second is a case study of the intergenerational community action work at the Beth Johnson Foundation, where groups of young and older people are brought together to investigate and challenge ageism, identify issues of concern within their neighbourhoods, and influence local decision makers to make appropriate changes.
