The network

We believe that the more connected we are, the more we can do.

All over the UK, people are coming together to make positive changes in their communities. 

Whether you've dipped your toe in the water with your first Big Lunch, you already run a community project, or you've just got an idea you want to explore, be part of our network and connect with like-minded people who can help you along the way. 

Find out more about what the Network is and how you can get involved below!
