Adopt a Grandparent, a charity seeking to build intergenerational relationships across the globe, has announced its expansion into Scotland with the establishment of its first Scottish office base at Edinburgh’s Napier University’s Entrepreneurship hub.
Adopt a Grandparent is working to reduce loneliness amongst the elderly population across the world. It has solidified a partnership with Napier University which stands as a pivotal moment in the organisation’s development. Alongside this news, the charity has also had its first Scottish dementia home, Hillview Advinia Care, join the scheme.
The office will serve as a central hub providing access to state-of-the-art meeting and event venues.
Nick Fannin, head of entrepreneurship at Edinburgh’s Napier University, said: “Welcoming Adopt a Grandparent to our entrepreneurship hub resonates deeply with our commitment to supporting innovative initiatives and building impactful connections within our community.
“With a shared commitment to innovation and social impact, the collaboration symbolises our dedication to nurturing and incubating schemes that transcend boundaries and catalyse meaningful change.”
