Over 9 million people in the UK say they are always or often lonely.

This winter, the Great Get Together wants to reduce loneliness and reduce stigma by building connection.

From DECEMBER 14TH to JANUARY 18TH The Great Get Together have planned a program of Winter events to help us face loneliness together, one connection at a time. To help continue to take forward Jo Cox’s vision of a less lonely, more connected world.

Featuring a different theme each week, they’re suggesting five ways people can connect, via a vibrant online celebration of community and connection which is sure to educate, inform and entertain!
