Get Connected

Get Connected is a campaign aimed at helping people feel more connected in their local communities.

Get Connected Week takes place every year and sees local organisations work together to promote the ways in which people can get connected in their local communities and beyond.

It's a chance for people to find out about all the activities and opportunities already available for them to access where they can have fun, meet new people and just get out and about more.

The aim of the week is to try to make sure that nobody's health and wellbeing suffers due to being lonely or feeling isolated. It's part of our plan to be a happier and healthier county by the year 2020.
