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.
