Our equality and cohesion fund project outcomes for July 2016 – June 2017
1. Organisations, including those working with protected characteristics age,
disability & race develop knowledge, understanding and projects that use
intergenerational approaches to challenge ageism and discrimination and
promote the inclusion of people from diverse backgrounds.
2. People within protected characteristics groups (age, disability and race)
experience a reduction in discrimination, loneliness and isolation and
barriers to connecting to other generations. They are more included in their
communities and acknowledged for their contributions.

organisations have an increased awareness, adopt and embed
intergenerational approaches to address the challenges of our ageing society
