Intergenerational practice literature review


Intergenerational practice literature review

The term ‘intergenerational practice’ covers a wide range of activities, and is only loosely defined (Pain, 2005; Granville, 2002). The accepted definition is that ‘intergenerational programmes are vehicles for the purposeful and ongoing exchange of resources and learning amongst older and younger generations for individual and social benefits’ (Abrahams et al., 2007, p. 1). Intergenerational practice tends to consist of small scale, intensive projects that bring older and younger people together in planned activities, and the range of approaches and activities varies (Pain, 2005).
