The Together Project is the national charity that boosts wellbeing, reduces loneliness and fosters stronger, happier communities by creating joyful intergenerational experiences.
Our vision is of a connected, inclusive society in which everyone has the opportunity to form joyful intergenerational friendships.
The Together Project designs joy-filled creative activities that are rolled out at scale to reach as much of the UK as possible. Each activity brings together at least two different age groups who might not normally come into regular contact, with a focus on fun and friendship in order to reduce social isolation.
In a recent survey, care home staff told us the following:
‘Songs & Smiles improves quality of life for our residents’ - 100% strongly agree
’Songs & Smiles brings happiness to our care home’ - 100% strongly agree
’Songs & Smiles has therapeutic benefits for people living with dementia’ - 100% strongly agree
’Songs & Smiles reduces social isolation for our residents’ - 75% strongly agree, 25% agree
Our current flagship offering is Songs & Smiles, a music group for young children, their parents/guardians and older adults, held in care homes and community spaces. We also have two exciting new intergenerational initiatives launching this year and ambitious plans for the future.
