Get Support

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: Please be aware that during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic all Better Together staff are working from home. The Better Together Helpline is currently operating usual hours, but experiencing high demand due to an increased number of people who are isolated, so do keep trying if you are unable to get through.    Some of our other services may be affected so follow us on Facebook and Twitter for further information and regular updates.  If you wish to contact a member of our Team, please go to Our Team pages for staff email addresses and work mobile numbers. Thank you.  (March 19, 2019)

Please have a look at our Get Support during Covid-19 for specific help during this time.

 

Better Together helps people who are lonely or socially isolated connect to activities and groups in their area, for the benefit of their mental and physical health and wellbeing.

We offer 1 to 1 support over the phone with our free telephone helpline, or we can arrange for one of our Life Connectors to visit a client in their home or in a convenient community location.

Our team will help a client identify the activities they would like to take part in and helping them overcome the barriers to taking part.  It may be lack of confidence,  transport or accessibility issues, or because they have caring or family commitments which make it difficult for them to leave the home.

We support local community groups to organise events which bring people together, by providing grants, resources, information and advice and we can help new community initiatives get off the ground.   We are also actively supporting the activities and development of Men’s Sheds in Norfolk, which play an important role in bringing men in our community together, offering activities, support and a means of connection.
