About us

We aim to improve the happiness and wellbeing of people across the UK by bringing communities together and inspiring them to make positive changes where they live. As part of the Eden Project, we're exploring how people can work with each other, and with nature, towards a better future.

We believe that connected communities are more resilient against local and global issues and are better equipped to tackle challenges and bring about positive change.

Impact

Each year we study the impact of all of the work we do with individuals and communities including our Community Camp events and The Big Lunch across the UK, and will shortly be releasing our findings on the value of connected communities. Find out more about our impact here.

However, many of the small steps we advocate and the skills we help build can make a big difference that isn't measurable with a number or percentage. If you'd like to talk with people we've worked with who are now running groups and projects where they live, please get in touch and we can help connect you with the right person.

Areas of activity

When communities get together, they often aim to make positive change by helping tackle something that matters locally. Many of the people and groups we support are helping to combat pressing UK and global issues, like:

  • Loneliness and isolation
  • Food equality, waste and security
  • Mental and physical health and wellbeing
  • The environment
  • Access to nature and play
