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.
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.
