Let's face loneliness together: one connection at a time.
Over 9 million people in the UK say they are always or often lonely.
This year has been particularly difficult, with lockdown and social distancing having exacerbated feelings of isolation for many people. It has also exposed more people than we could have imagined to the experience and concept of loneliness.
Connection is one way we can face loneliness. It can happen in many different ways, including joining virtual events, supporting a neighbour or reaching out to an old friend. This winter, the Great Get Together wants to reduce loneliness and reduce stigma by building connection.
Let's take forward Jo Cox’s vision of a less lonely, more connected world.
Join in with the Great Winter Get Together.
