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. This year’s Great Get Together wasn’t in its traditional form, but there was still plenty our community did to connect whilst staying safe.

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