As part of our drive to make the biggest impact possible, we are proud to announce that we are changing our name from Brighton and Hove Impetus to Together Co.

Led by input and advice from volunteers, clients and scheme members, we have taken the decision to change our name to better describe who we are and what we do.

Over two decades, we have made a difference to thousands of people who experience isolation and loneliness across the city.

In the last few years, there has been an increase in demand for our services, the needs of our community are changing, and the funding environment is ever more challenging.

We want to refresh our brand to ensure we are ready for the future. We want to overcome potential challenges, extend our work and involve even more people.

Our name has changed, but our ethos hasn’t. We remain committed to the warmth and compassion our organisation is known for.

In line with our new name, our services have also been rebranded:

The Neighbourhood Care Scheme will now be known as Together Co Befriending.

Community Navigation will now be known as Together Co Social Prescribing.

The services will remain exactly the same apart from a change in name.

We are really excited about our new look and the opportunity this brings. We’d like to thank everyone for their ongoing commitment and support.

We believe in a city of nearly 300,000 no one should be lonely or socially isolated. Together, we can make sure no one is.

CEO, Together Co
