Kit Out The Nation
As we all emerge from the Coronavirus pandemic, the BBC’s local radio stations across England are coming together to help children and families.

‘Kit Out the Nation’ is a month-long campaign (Saturday 4th September – 2nd October) as part of the BBC Make a Difference brand aimed at taking in and distributing unwanted, good condition sports kit and getting them to children and teenagers who need it.
It has long known the issue around access to sport and exercise because of the affordability of kit. The situation has been compounded by the pandemic and this is our chance to help to improve that situation.

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee published a report on 29th July 2021 where they said data from Sport England showing 100,000 fewer children met the recommended level of activity in 2020 than in 2019 was “of significant concern”

Community Together CIC is proud to be a drop off point for donations of kit at their centre in Tamworth Castle Grounds, Opposite the Tennis Courts, River Drive, Tamworth B79 7ND open Monday to Friday 10am to 3pm.

We will also run a special donation days, all day 10am-5pm on Saturday 2nd September, Saturday 11th September 2021 and Saturday 2nd October.
Please also call 01827 59646 if they wish to arrange a collection of their donation.

    live well

    Living Well means maintaining good mental health as well as physical health as an adult. Knowing what support is available at the time you need it is key.

    age well

    As we get older, age should not be a barrier to accessing activities that help maintain independence and prevent people from becoming lonely. Community Together CIC helps people to be independent and connected with their local communities, through offering a range of activities such as Befriending, Seated Exercise Classes, Volunteering opportunities, Arts and Crafts, Community Café Drop-in Sessions, Dementia Support and Singing for the Mind.

    Sapheen – supported by her P.A Sharon – Service User

    "Sapheen first attended a Community Together CIC Café almost 3 years ago. She was made really welcome and is now a regular and has gone on to attend other Community Together CIC initiatives including Befriending Group, Arts and Craft Club, and the Singing Group as well as going on the annual seaside trip. Attending these services has given Sapheen the opportunity and confidence to interact with others, making many new friends along the way. When asked why she liked to go to the Community Café or Hub, Sapheen said “They are nice and I have fun”. Asked how she would feel if they were not here, she said “very sad, I would miss everybody”. Community Together CIC has been such a positive experience for Sapheen and we recommend both the Community Cafes and Hub to others all the time. We are certainly glad that we gave that first Community Café a go because it has enriched Sapheen’s social life so much."

    Sharon - Why do I Volunteer?

    "I like to give something back to the community and volunteering has provided me that opportunity. I feel privileged knowing I am making a difference just by giving a little of my time to talk, listen and even just give a smile. I never imagined that when I walked into the Hub a year ago I would meet such inspiring kind people. I look forward to Wednesdays and the befriending group as it's like meeting up with good friends. I have volunteered in a local charity shop before but would recommend volunteering with Community Together CIC."

    Claire Underwood, Transformation Programme Manager

    Intergrated Care University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust.

    “ I feel extremely proud and privileged to work with such a professional, approachable, caring, kind, flexible and compassionate organisation that is Community Together CIC.  Without such organisations and relationships I would not be able to successfully do my job.  The truly valuable difference they make to people’s lives who they touch is priceless.  This can include to name a few professional workers, voluntary workers and service users.  I have had the pleasure of working very closely with them for the last 5 years in a number of roles locally in the NHS.  Particularly my current role for Burton Hospitals and my previous role as Area Manager for Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent NHS Partnership Trust.  I am delighted to continue to work with them on a number of projects and to create new ways of working to support the local populations needs in a creative and innovative manner.  Community Together CIC are essential to ensure the sustainability of NHS services due to a number of reasons including the increasing demand for services, the ageing population, people living longer and the increasing challenge of the loneliness and social isolation of vulnerable people.    The team are a delight to work with and Lee and Steven lead the team with a beautiful manner and approach.  I look forward to working with them for many more years and supporting local people to live healthier, better and more positive lives.  Thank you Lee and Steven, it’s a true pleasure.”
