What is the Great Get Together?
The Great Get Together is an initiative inspired by the late Jo Cox designed to bring people together to celebrate what they have in common. Through the Great Get Together, we ask people across the country to make connections, tackle local issues, and bridge divides.
Let's face loneliness together: one connection at a time.
The Great Winter Get Together
December 14th - January 18th
For this year’s Great Winter Get Together, we are talking about loneliness and the importance of building connections. Anyone can experience loneliness but winter can be a particularly difficult time, especially this year. Connection is one way we can face loneliness together.
What difference we make?
The Great Get Together in 2019 inspired people across the country, from Orkney to Jersey and from Lowestoft to Derry-Londonderry. It just wouldn’t happen without the thousands of volunteers from every part of the country, who help bring their communities together.
