Our country has a rich mix of people of different cultures, ages, and backgrounds. But all too often, these differences can divide us.
In December 2017, we supported the Great Christmas Get Together campaign. Across the country, our young people and colleagues shared #mincepiemoments with people from all walks of life, taking time out for a mince pie, a cup of tea, and a chat to challenge isolation.
- We ran an event in parliament with the APPG on Social Integration, bringing young and old together to understand how generations connect.
- In London, we brought home-made mince pies to a retirement home Christmas party.
- More than 150 Challenge staff members nationwide took part in the campaign, joining thousands of people across the country.
