Great Get Togethers help people to make genuine connections. 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 that attend them forever.
“I now feel like no matter what you look like or where you may originally be from, we all have something in common and that's what makes us feel like we belong.”
“The Great Get Together suggested discussion topics for us to get our chatter on, themed around home, kindness and welcome, and we definitely found we have more in common, with lots of links and connections amongst us. Liverpool is famously known as a village in a city and it really showed today.”

"We’ll always remember the time we got married in the street by our neighbours. We didn’t know any of these people before lockdown and we’ll remember that forever."
“We’ve got different people from different countries, from different religions coming together, working together, making things happen, which is important. It’s what community is all about."
