Our Story

Cathy and friend at Minerva Lodge

We were established by David Oliver and Peter Crockett together with staff and users at the London Borough of Islington’s New Park Day Centre as an unconstituted trust called Music for People in 2006. We took talented mental health service user musicians to perform in care homes and day centres for older people.

In 2009 we achieved charitable status and in 2012 began providing exercise and digital exclusion classes, again in care homes and day centres and also in the community.

We became Healthy Generations in 2013 to better describe our overall aim to promote inclusion and improve health and well being and our growing programme of exercise classes.
