Our communities are full of amazing people who volunteer their time and energy to create opportunities for connection and belonging in many different ways.
We are delighted to be able to support these fabulous volunteer organisers who are making a huge difference - not only to the lives of the people who participate in their initiatives but to their own lives too!
We hope you will be inspired by reading some of their stories.

Bev and Sue - Grassmoor Meet and Greet
“A great place if you’re feeling a little lonely. Lots of shared stories and laughs, and lovely new friends too.”
“This group gives you purpose to your week, something to look forward to.”
Turning a conversation on the bus into a sense of belonging - for themselves and the people of Grassmoor - an inspiring example of community-based volunteer organisers helping people to feel connected
Claire - Chesterfield ADHD Drop In Group
"This group gives me and others an opportunity to unmask, relax and socialise in a way that feels good – it’s a nice place to meet, chat and laugh together”.
"It’s nice to feel understood and unjudged when we have our meet ups. It’s a safe place to share experiences with others who ‘get it’".
A journey from personal need to community impact
