Frequently Asked Questions

Who organises the Great Get Together?

The Great Get Together is organised by The Jo Cox Foundation, which is a registered charity (charity number 1170836).


Can we fundraise at our Great Get Together?

Absolutely! The Great Get Together is organised by us at the Jo Cox Foundation and we'd love it if you wanted to fundraise so we can continue and expand our work to bridge divides and unite communities, inspired by Jo Cox. You can send any donations via the Jo Cox Foundation website or JustGiving.

The official date for the Great Winter Get Together doesn’t work for me. Can I still take part?

Of course! The most important thing is bringing people together, so if a date during 16-29 January doesn’t suit you, go ahead and choose another date. You can still register your event with us to appear on the map.

Is The Great Get Together party political?

Not at all! The idea for The Great Get Together is about bringing communities together to celebrate what we have in common. While it does have cross-party backing and it is support by some of the most prominent Remain and Brexit campaigners it is completely outside of formal politics.

How can I connect with other Great Get Together organisers?

The best way of connecting with other get together organisers is through attending one of our informal Great Plan Together sessions or joining our Facebook group.

We hope that hearing about other people’s triumphs and challenges along the way will support and inspire you to throw the best Get Together possible.

I live outside the UK, can I have a get together?

Yes – of course. The most important thing is bringing people together!


Can my school get involved?

We absolutely love schools getting involved! We have produced guidance to support schools with running assemblies and lessons around youth loneliness and the Great Winter Get Together. Sign up to receive yours.


Should I tell you about my event?

We'd love that! Please register your event with us to have it added to our map. You can also share images and videos from the day with us by tagging us on social media. If you want to drop us an email, we're at [email protected].
