Since beginning the Griffith University intergerational care project in 2017, the interest in intergenerational programs has grown immensely and there is a ground swell with building momentum within child care and aged care sectors, governments and among the general community.
Program Lead, Professor Anneke Fitzgerald stated that one of the questions most commonly asked while conducting the research was:
“How do we get an intergenerational program up and running in our service?”
Therefore, the project team have developed a toolkit to provide a practical, step-by-step guide to the three-stage process of developing, implementing and evaluating an intergenerational learning program:
- Stage 1: Project planning and program development
- Stage 2: Program implementation
- Stage 3: Program evaluation
This resource provides a range of tools and templates to support each stage of the process.
The operational guidelines presented in this resource are evidence-based and have been developed from the findings from the Intergenerational Care Project. They are designed for organisational and community group managers, child care and aged care practitioners, and novice researchers.
The Operational Guidelines and Toolkit are available and free to download from our Intergenerational Care Program website.
