Our Goals and Aims

Please be aware that most Better Together staff are still working from home. If you wish to contact a member of our Team, please go to Our Team page for staff email addresses and work mobile numbers.

Most people experience loneliness at some time in their lives, perhaps caused by changes in family circumstances, moving home, bereavement, caring commitments or physical or mental ill health.

It affects people of all ages from all backgrounds and while we know that connecting with other people, volunteering or taking part in activities and groups can help overcome a sense of loneliness, it can be hard to take those first steps.

Better Together brings people together and offers information, advice and support to help people make the most of activities and opportunities in their area.
