Our Chance to Reconnect: Final report of the talk/together project

The final talk/together report finds that society has pulled together, not apart, as a result of the pandemic, and that people are keen to retain the best of the new community spirit that has emerged.

  • Despite periods of unease, the public responded by strengthening community connections
  • Most people got to know their neighbours better
  • An overwhelming majority want to keep the benefits of closer communities and build on them
  • A massive 12.4 million people volunteered during the pandemic, 4.6 million of them for the first time, of whom 75% would volunteer again

We found a clear public appetite for a society in which we are more connected to each other and the community spirit of 2020 is kept alive.
– Bishop Nick Baines, Chair of /together trustees
