The Great Get Together

Together is connection, compassion, community.

Faced with the recent challenging times, we thought we’d have to cancel the Great Get Together. However, we were overwhelmed by the inspiring stories of how communities have supported each other across the U.K. Physical distancing has motivated many of us to stay socially connected. This year’s Great Get Together won’t be in its traditional form, but there is still plenty we can do to connect whilst staying safe.

Over June 19th-21st, we’re asking you to join us in celebrating the power of community.
