Talk/together

View all news

Talk/together aims to be the biggest public consultation since the census. From our conversations across the UK we will form the most authoritative picture yet of how COVID-19 has changed our society and what has stayed the same; of the divisions we fear; and the changes that people want to see in order to build a kinder, closer and more connected society.

A national conversation about what unites and divides us, and how we can help reconnect with each other.

On 5th July, the birthday of the NHS, the /together coalition helped bring millions of people together in a shared moment of thanks, as the ‘Clap for carers’ was heard again in streets across the UK.

/together, of which British Future is proud to be a founding member, believes that moments like these – when we come together to focus on what we have in common – are important.

Now we want to find out how we can do more of this. We want to find out whether the Covid crisis has helped bring us closer together – and how we keep hold of that new community spirit into the future.

Talk/together hopes to be the biggest-ever public conversation the UK has seen. From our conversations across the UK we will form the most authoritative picture yet of how COVID-19 has changed our society and what has stayed the same; of the divisions we fear; and the changes that people want to see in order to build a kinder, closer and more connected society.

Talk/together comprises:

Face-to-face discussions across the UK will start in September 2020, public health advice permitting. We will publish some of of Talk/together’s initial findings in autumn 2020, and a final report early in 2021. We will also use our evidence to argue for policy change and the practical action we need to achieve Together’s aims.
