Bring Joy Foundation

The Bring Joy Foundation was launched in 2014 to bring fun and joy back in to ageing. The charity has a clear vision, to fund the little things that can make a big difference to older people’s lives.

Groups, organisations and charities across the UK who work with the elderly can apply for a donation to fund events, activity or pastime that bring joy and fun back in to ageing.
