The network

We believe that the more connected we are, the more we can do, so our Community Network Developers and friends have planned a regular slot for a series of online meet-ups to support each other and to support our communities in the face of Covid-19. They're taking place every Wednesday lunchtime, 12.30 – 2pm. Find out more and sign up below.

We’re also bringing you a new programme of talks and workshops online from some of our regular speakers. Launching next week with the hope to provide a chance to learn, be inspired and connect, the sessions will be open to all and on a wide range of subjects. Look out for what’s coming up here or on our Facebook page.

All over the UK, people are coming together to make positive changes in their communities. Recently we have seen a huge increase of community responses to the current crisis, people who now have the time to respond, coming together to address the needs of their neighbours and communities.

Whether you've dipped your toe in the water with supporting a neighbour, setting up a community support group, if you already run a community project and have done for years, or you've just got an idea you want to explore, you are invited to join our network and connect with like-minded people who help each other along the way.

The Big Lunch will be a bit different this year but it's more important than ever to connect and be thankful for our neighbours and communities.  We've got a few ideas, join in any way you can!
