The Altogether Better community project
The Altogether Better community project aims to reduce social isolation and loneliness by creating opportunities for people of all ages to get involved with others, sharing time and skills. The project runs over four localities including Burnt Oak, East Finchley, Edgware and Stonegrove and High Barnet. Groups such as community choirs, yoga and meditation, weekly walks, computer classes for seniors, sharing cooking skills and table tennis groups are some of the many projects run by volunteers also known as ‘Community Friends’ across the four localities.
