The virus is having dramatically different effects on different generations. While older people are much more likely to get severely ill, younger people are taking a much worse economic hit. Their education and employment opportunities have had to dramatically alter and at various points throughout the pandemic, have been curtailed. 

Explore case studies from councils which showcase the best examples of working together to support and empower different generations and how COVID-19 exacerbated the inequalities older and younger people faced.
