About Us

Making it easier to bring people together

Our Story

The Feeling Connected Project is here to support, celebrate and inspire local action to improve social connection and reduce the impact of loneliness and isolation across Chesterfield and NE Derbyshire.


Our aim is to make it easier for local people to set up and run informal community initiatives that bring people together where they live. 


We launched the Feeling Connected Organisers' Programme to do just that. You can find out more here>


It's all free and includes easy-to-apply-for funding, free training as well as 1:1 mentoring and advice, tailored to individual needs.


And whether you're running a group or not,  we believe everyone can play a valuable role in supporting local efforts to tackle loneliness. If you've got experience to share, support to offer or simply want to learn more, we invite you to join us and be part of the growing, supportive network we call The Feeling Connected Family

Add why we are focussing on informal.  who we serve and why and who our partners are.  Maybe add a Our Impact section with map and metrics

Meet the Team

This is what we value and believe in ....

The solution to loneliness already exists.  It's in each of us, it's in our neighbours, it's in our communities.
