There are millions of people throughout England who wish to reach out and help others. Our role is to channel their positive energy, providing inspiration, resources and support networks to assist them in making a tangible impact.
The Together Network
In 2015, the Together Network worked alongside over 500 different churches to help them start or develop social action activities, including a slow-cooking course for people at risk of food poverty in Newcastle, a community hub for vulnerable adults in Canterbury and a weekly lunch club for elderly people in Coventry, with food served by local ex-offenders.
The Together Network, in 2015, facilitated almost 350 partnership projects, working alongside over 700 local and national partners. These partnerships help people to avoid duplication and to learn from others’ experience; they also encourage innovation by bringing new partners together for the first time.
In 2015, the Together Network delivered 365 workshops, training events and presentations, attended by almost 12,000 people. These events were based on a wide range of topics including financial inclusion, homelessness and the refugee crisis, and also on how to run and sustain work in communities, how to manage volunteers and how to raise funds.
