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 new connections and promote Jo's message of unity.
Over 3.5 million people took part in the Great Winter Get Together, but 97% of people surveyed thought loneliness would be a growing problem in the months ahead. We want to amplify your voices in our communications and keep the conversation around loneliness flowing. Sharing your story could help others recognise their feelings.
What difference we make?
The 2020 Great Winter Get Together was the Jo Cox Foundation's most ambitious campaign thus far. Spanning from mid-December to Blue Monday on January 18th, each week was themed with practical ways the public could face loneliness together: one connection at a time.
