We are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us.
Jo Cox, first speech to parliament, 3 June 2015  

What is the Great Get Together?

Inspired by the late Jo Cox MP and her message of unity, twice a year we encourage people to come together in their communities and make new connections. In June, on the weekend closest to Jo’s birthday, these community events bring to life her ‘more in common’ message. In January, Great Winter Get Together community events demonstrate the power of meaningful connection to reduce loneliness.

The Story So Far

Run a Great Get Together

Run a Great Get Together (23-25 June)

The Great Get Together is inspired by Jo Cox, who was murdered on the 16th of June 2016. In her first speech in Parliament, Jo said, ”We have more in common than that which divides us”. Through the Great Get Together, we ask people across the country to embrace Jo’s words and come together each June to hold events that unite their communities. The annual celebration helps unite people while showing the collective power we have as a community.
