Telling the story of the thousands of children who migrated from the Orphan Homes of Scotland to to new lives in Canada, The Golden Bridge was inspired by an original exhibition created and displayed by Heatherbank Museum of Social Work in Glasgow Caledonian University. The Golden Bridge project was a collaboration between Iriss, Glasgow Caledonian University and Quarriers.
Iriss's Innovation and Improvement team led a 30-month project, from July 2013 until January 2016, redesigning the pathway from hospital to home for older people across Scotland. They worked with health and social care practitioners, older people, their families and informal carers to identify issues and improve care pathways from hospital to home and enable a more positive experience for all.
