About us

Our vision is by working collaboratively with people, Local Authorities and Organisations we aim to bring about change at a Social level: to do the social knitting required to create stronger and more resilient communities. Supporting them to identify and remove barriers that prevent them living connected lives, thus reducing isolation, loneliness and exclusion.

We work to reduce social distance and increase the visibility of underrepresented groups across all our interventions.

Friends Hugging

Our work involves utilising a range of projects and interventions to improve outcomes for communities that are often left behind.

Giving people time, undivided attention and empathy meets a fundamental emotional need and reduces distress and despair.

We are not like other charities, we are not afraid to challenge existing ways of doing things and pride ourselves in using innovative ideas to create projects that meet current changing needs. We refuse to accept that any life is worth less than another.
