JOY – Joining Old and Young

A pioneering inter-generational charity bringing the old and young together through shared activities


JOY brings together the older and younger generations through shared experiences and paired activities to create relationships and friendships based on our core values of respect, empathy and compassion. We use the similarities and differences of these two generations to foster interaction, connectivity and communication and encourage both age groups to learn from each other.

JOY’s Featured Project of the Month

Create. Draw. Write.

Send Us Your Creations

Let’s combat lonlieness and isolation and share JOY.

Do you have a young child at home?

Want to show them the importance of staying connected to others, and the power of spreading joy?

Here’s a wonderful way to do just that!

We invite you to

Draw a picture
Write a story
Create a poster

We will be sending all items received to all the elderly we are connected with!

Many thanks from us all at JOY


Please post your creations to


11 Green Lane

or send them to us via email and we’ll print them, laminate them and deliver them safely to a member of the older generation.
