A Farewell & A Thanks

It’s with a huge amount of pride and an inevitable dose of sadness that we’re announcing the closure of Connectforce Community. The venture has been in operation for three years, and founder-directors Claudia, Victoria and Eleanor have come to the decision that now is the right time to bring active operation to a close.


Connectforce began as a reaction and a response to the pandemic, as a casual conversation between fellow volunteers chopping onions and packaging meals for NHS workers. We never could have predicted or planned for what followed - that kernel of an idea led to us incorporating as a business, working with nine brilliant freelancers, two external Board members, recruiting over 100 volunteers and establishing relationships with countless local councils, care homes and networks supporting young people. Most importantly, Connectforce programmes have supported over 200 marginalised individuals and facilitated over 20,000 minutes worth of conversations, creating intergenerational connections across the United Kingdom. It’s been a pleasure and a privilege. 


We want to extend our gratitude to everyone who has helped us over the last three years. Without our tireless supporters, collaborators, mentors and volunteers, we would never have got off the ground. Thank you.
