You're invited!

In celebration of Jo’s belief that we have more in common, we Get Together at Christmas and in the Summer.

Want to take part? We’d love it if you could join in. Sign up for updates below to make sure you get tips, resources and news about the big day.



The connections we make during Get Togethers are real. Whether it's a street party, sports day, community lunch or school assembly the events held as part of The great Get Together change the communities they are held in and the people who attend them forever.

But don't take our word for it! Check out the results of our Get Together evaluations.

What difference do we make?


For the last two years thousands of Get Togethers have happened up and down the UK. But what actually happens at a Get Together and what do people get out of it? Here are the stories of a range of Get Togethers to give you a flavour of just how great the annual event is.
