The Generations Foundation was set up in July 2005 by the Finch Family.

The foundation supports local causes in the Borough of Merton where the family are resident and also works abroad in developing countries. The trust also supports projects for environmental protection and conservation; the central aim being to leave a gift for future generations. The trustees are Bob Finch, Stephen Finch and Rohini Finch.

The Generations Club runs on Saturdays between 12pm and 4pm in Mitcham. The club is for young people with a learning disability who are in their final year at school or have just left school.

The purpose the club is to support young people with a learning disability to participate in community activities, encourage them to adopt a healthy lifestyle and develop their independent living skills. Activities at the club include training in food hygiene, travel training and learning how to keep safe in the community. Sports and leisure activities are also on offer and are chosen by the young people attending the club, these have included sports day in the local park, trips to London to visit museums, graffiti art workshop, shopping and lunch out.
