Marmalade Trust is a charity that raises awareness of loneliness and helps people to make new connections.Their vision is to create a society where anyone can talk freely and openly about loneliness – after all, it’s a normal human emotion.
Marmalade Trust is the home of Loneliness Awareness Week, and we’re working with them this year to encourage people to use The Great Get Together as a way of building connections and tackling loneliness. We’ve written a joint toolkit to build understanding of loneliness and suggest some ways of connecting.
Reading Rooms is a group session for children where a trained volunteer reads a story and has guided conversations about current issues such as bullying, climate change and poverty. With Covid-19 restrictions the team have moved this online and created Digital Reading Rooms. This gives children the chance to have some fun interacting with one another, having a chat and enjoy a story being read to them by one of their fantastic volunteers.
For this year’s Great Get Together, they have opened up the online Digital Reading Rooms to allow us all to come together. Sessions are available from 11am on Friday 19th June and can be booked on the verbal.
Britain Connects and The Great Get Together are partnering to bring people together virtually over the 19th-21st June.
In partnership with The Mirror and The Express, Britain Connects will be connecting people across the country from different backgrounds and with different views.
Though this year, we can’t come together as we normally would, Britain Connects is an opportunity to meet new people. This is a chance to share your opinions, ask those questions you were always curious about, find out what other people are going through, and even help someone feel less lonely.
Make sure you sign up at britainconnects.co.uk by 15th June to find your match.
