About the Intergenerational National Network

The Intergenerational National Network (INN) brings together people across Scotland (and further afield) who have an interest in intergenerational practice and, increasingly, multigenerational working.

Membership is free. Members come from the community, voluntary, arts, academic, private and statutory sectors; individual members are also welcome.

We usually meet between three and five times a year. We have no funding, so meetings are hosted by member organisations, who offer venues and tea and coffee. The programme is then agreed with the partners for that session and usually includes

  • Presentations – local interesting practice, or insights from elsewhere, or both
  • An information sharing element, which is an opportunity for everyone present to share information, challenges, thoughts and ideas, and future plans
  • A chance to network over coffee or lunch.

The INN came into being following a meeting at the University of Strathclyde in March 2007. Around the same time, ‘All Our Futures in Scotland’ was published, which included a commitment to establish a Scottish Centre for Intergenerational Practice. INN worked with other organisations on the development of the Scottish Centre for Intergenerational Practice, subsequently renamed Generations Working Together.

INN continues to complement the work that other people and organisations are doing to promote and support intergenerational working and share what we are all learning.

For more information, or to join INN, please contact Pat Scrutton, Co-ordinator, at or on 07557766779. You can also like us on Facebook – a space to share thoughts on intergenerational matters.
