Helping you to move forward
Roughly 70% of the UK Population have been stressed, anxious or worried about Covid. Our Reconnect Project looks at helping you to move forward with life and live happily.

What others are saying
Tim, one of the first people to approach our Reconnect project, said: "I'm so happy with my last week, I was refusing to go out of my home, even getting online shopping so there is no reason for me to go outside. I have now been able to get fresh air and meet people who help me feel good. Thanks so much to Carol and the rest of the team"
Steve went on one of our free day trips to Cleethorpes, here's what he said afterwards: "Myself, and a few others recently went on a trip to Cleethorpes with Laura from Ongo in their minibus. Picking up another on the way, we had a fun time bantering and joking on the bus. Cleethorpes was a bit chilly, but we were all dressed for the cold, except for Melissa, lol, the sea air was amazing. A nice walk along the beachfront where we all mingled, chatted and joked.
Ian got doughnuts for our group to share, nice of him, wish I could have had one though. Went for dinner to a fish and chip restaurant, nice food by the way, which was good as we could all interact together and have a good laugh, as well as learning about different types of fish from the seasoned members of the group. Afterwards we went for a walk into town to look at the shops, mostly charity shops as we were looking for bargains. We followed this up by a walk on the seafront with icecream, where we waited for Neil to pick us up. All in all, this was a very nice day, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
A thoroughly entertaining day, which really made us all happy."
Hayley Pirie, Store Manager of Tesco Extra in Scunthorpe, said: “We have all been affected by Covid in some way, so we are glad to support this great community initiative. Something like this is just what the local area needs, especially the mental health support and counselling.”
