British Future is proud to be a founding member of /Together, a new coalition that everyone is invited to join. It aims to bring people together and bridge divides, to help build a kinder, closer and more connected society.
/Together launched on 5 July 2020, partnering with the NHS on its birthday to bring over 13 million people together in a moment of connection with neighbours and thanks to all those who are helping us get through these difficult times.
The initiative evolved from conversations across civil society, faith, media, sport and culture into a campaign to heal social divides. A Steering Group, chaired by the Archbishop of Canterbury, includes a range of organisations and individuals from the NHS and ITV to the Scouts, Guides, the British Paralympic Association, trade unions and the CBI.
To inform /Together’s work, British Future conducted Talk/together, the UK’s biggest-ever conversation about what unites and divides us and what could bring us closer together. Nearly 160,000 people took part and the findings were published in the report ‘Our chance to reconnect‘.
