From Loreen Pardoe, Support from the Start
Generations Working Together is the nationally recognised centre of excellence supporting the development and integration of intergenerational work across Scotland. They have produced a new guide to connecting generations online safely.
As the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on towns and cities across the UK intensified, the need to link business support to community need has never been more urgent. To meet this demand Business in the Community (BITC) formed the National Business Response Network which matched community needs with the right business support.
BITC Scotland sought out local needs such as those faced by Generations Working Together (GWT). BITC took the time to understand the need in detail and assessed the Business offers of support to make the most appropriate match.
Verizon came to the fore as a result of their strong social responsibility and philosophy, providing support to GWT to fully understand online safeguarding. This was our starting point and Verizon’s capability and enthusiasm to assist GWT flourished, one demonstration of the outcomes is this guide to support the fundamental work of GWT.
