The Great Get Together - 24-26 June 2022

Register your event

On the weekend closest to Jo Cox’s birthday - 24-26 June 2022 - ordinary people up and down the UK will unite their communities with Great Get Together events that bring people from different backgrounds together around a common cause. This could be showing support for refugees, looking after your local park, or getting to know each other through crafting or gardening.

When we bring different people together, Jo’s words - “we have more in common than that which divides us” - come to life.

This year, we're encouraging people to embrace the idea of 'welcome' as part of their Great Get Together celebrations and using these events as an opportunity to show your community is welcoming to all. 

We are once again partnering with Refugee Week and running the Great Walk Together - community walks all over the UK organised as part of the Great Get Together weekend. Wherever you walk and whoever you walk with, by taking part in the Great Walk Together you'll be creating new connections and reflecting on the journeys that refugees face.
