Together Co is a ‘loneliness’ charity which seeks to create connections to change lives in Brighton, Hove and beyond. They also offer support services that maintain, improve and advance the health and general welfare of people who are living with disabilities and/or long term illnesses.
Since the Covid-19 lockdowns they have been busy building on the huge increase in awareness of the devastating impact of loneliness. As well as expanding the befriending service we supported, they have expanded on their social prescribing and volunteering and have also brought together a number of diverse organisations to bring about change.
Befriending is now recognised as a national solution to loneliness and the support and services provided by charities like Together Co with their wonderful volunteers is vital to allow as many people as possible to live their fullest and happiest lives.
