Silver Stories was created by David Carney-Haworth OBE and his wife, Elisabeth Carney-Haworth OBE. David is a retired Police Sergeant. Elisabeth is a primary school Head Teacher with over 40 years’ experience.

They created Silver Stories in 2015 in response to their knowledge about the loneliness that can be felt by the elderly in the community and their often separation from the younger generation.

Having both witnessed first-hand how magical the relationship between the generations can be, they wanted to create a way in which this could be fostered whilst also benefiting the participating children. So, from these desires Silver Stories was born.
