Support us

More people than ever before are lonely or socially isolated.
You can change that.

Loneliness and social isolation are deadly. A lack of social connections has been shown to be as harmful to our health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. We create life-changing and life-saving connections – but we can only do so with your support.

Help us make a difference

If you or your organisation want to help transform the lives of vulnerable and isolated people in the city, we’d love to hear from you. We are looking for:

  • Charity of the Year partnerships with local organisations
  • Links with schools, community groups, and businesses keen to help us raise awareness and vital funds
  • Enthusiastic fundraisers, willing to run, walk, bake, sew, sing, swim or more!
  • Small, regular donations which help ensure we can be there for as long as we are needed.
Virtual fundraising ideas

Fundraise for us

Taking fundraising online is a great opportunity to connect with friends and family. Just come up with your own unique challenge and set up a Just Giving Page. It could be a birthday party, a dance off, a bake off, a virtual sponsored walk, run, indoor cycle OR set up a live stream event and direct your audience to your donation page.

Support us through your company

Corporate partnerships

There are 36,000 people in our city who are always or often lonely. Your business could change that. This could be through sponsorship. This could be through employee volunteering. Talk to us about how we can end loneliness and isolation in our city – together.

Community Groups, Clubs and Schools

Community groups are crucial in helping to break down social isolation. We build beneficial partnerships with local groups who want to fundraise and make a difference in their communities. Let’s talk about how we can transform lives together.
