Intergenerational Work and Community Capacity Building Intergenerational Quiz

Introduction Introduce myself and Elaine and both our roles..

Elaine Grogan works in the Community Planning Team within the Chief Executives offices of East Renfrewshire Council. Her role in the intergenerational quiz was to make sure that the event was planned, monitored and evaluated using tried and tested means. Within our department we used How Good is our Community Learning & Development based loosely around the LEAP model. Also I am keen to keep reintroducing/advocating Capacity Building as this is one of the main roles for me within Community Planning and as a Community Worker it is always about sustainability. (also I like to nag)

Also introduce icebreaker hinging oot the washin1OutcomesParticipants understand the benefits of intergenerational involvement by working, learning and volunteering together.Intergenerational practice is inclusive, building on the positive resources that the younger and older have to offer each other and those around them (Beth Johnson Foundation, 2009)When we think about outcomes we should be considering what we wish to see at the end of a project which reflects why we are carrying out the work and in fact its not been considered in its entirety. The first outcome is what was agreed at the start of the project, this would be measured at the end of the project to see if we had achieved what we set out to do and what could/would happen would we carry out another one? What would we change? And how would that change happen.2Why should we be Building Community Capacity through Intergenerational PracticeReduced Social Isolation - For All Participants.Better Health Outcomes - P.I.E.S.Community Leaders. Power in Numbers.You are Part of the Decision Process Your View Counts!Being Part of Your Community.- Not looking out but being part.Breaking Down PerceptionsQuestioning Stereotypes Old People and Young People an Everyone Inbetween.FUN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Younger and older people are the two groups most affected by ageist attitudes and when we talk about abuse, poverty, lack of political voice and marginalisation these two groups are the most affected. Intergenerational approaches are an effective way to address a number of issues - many of them key government priorities - such as building active communities, promoting citizenship, regenerating neighbourhoods and addressing inequality.

3The Christie Report Recommendations

Being Taken Forward by the Consultation on the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Bill

We need to adopt a cross-sectoral approach that makes use of all resources public, private and third sectors.Services must be designed with and for people and communities - not delivered 'top down' for administrative convenience. Maximising scarce resources by utilising all available resources from the public, private and third sectors, individuals, groups and communitiesWorking closely with individuals and communities to understand their needs, maximise talents and resources, support self reliance, and build resilience

4Single Outcome AgreementSOA 5 : Older People in East Renfrewshire are valued; their voices are heard and they are supported to enjoy full and positive lives for longer.

The SOA reflects the most important priorities of our residents. It is the core strategicdocument for the East Renfrewshire Community Planning Partnership (CPP) as we work todeliver excellent services that focus on the delivery of outcomes. The SOA is a keydemonstration of our commitment to the people of East Renfrewshire.

Together we strive to create a healthy, confident and successfulpopulation in East Renfrewshire, where everyone lives in a safe,attractive environment and benefits from an enhanced quality of life.

Our residents are safer in their neighbourhoods and their homes.

Our learners are successful, confident individuals, effectivecontributors and responsible citizens.

Our communities are more engaged and have more influence overservice design and delivery5Talking Points.

Over two and a half years representatives from more than twenty health and social care partnerships and provider organisations around Scotland worked with the Joint Improvement Team to develop and implement the Talking Points: Personal Outcomes Approach (formerly UDSET). 2008.

This approach is one of a range of tools and approaches being promoted by the Scottish Government to support health and social care partnerships to focus on outcomes important to service users and carers. Outcomes in this context are understood both as the goals that users and carers want to achieve in partnership with services, and as the impact of services on individual lives. 6 E.R.C. Talking Points Choices.Getting involved in your community. Feeling safe.Having things to do. Having a say.Improving your confidence. Staying Well.Being treated with dignity and respect.

East Renfrewshire's Community Health and Care Partnership (CHCP) fully support the Talking Points personal outcomes approach which is based on years of research on what is important to people who use health and social care services. The starting point for services is to have a conversation with the person to find out what is important to them in life, and then to work out how everybody can work together to achieve the outcomes identified. Sometimes this can involve the person changing or improving some aspect of their life, and sometimes it can mean trying to maintain qualify of life, despite health problems. Focusing on outcomes means trying to ensure the greatest independence and quality of life possible for the individual, please see related documents on the following pages for further information.
