We are The Together Plan
We are a UK charity working with socially and economically disadvantaged communities in the former Soviet Union.
We help communities to help themselves
The Together Plan trains communities and their leaders to conceive, plan and run community activities, and pass on their skills to members of their and other communities.
We are sensitive to cultures and values
The Together Plan always works to understand a community’s needs and our projects are sensitive to the local culture, traditions, laws and values of that community.
We are the Next Generation
Our Youth for Youth movement brings together passionate young people across Europe and beyond to share ideas and expertise to transform their own and each other’s communities.
We revive Judaism
The Together Plan provides Jewish education and helps revive Jewish traditions, after tragic and destructive decades under Nazi occupation and Soviet rule.
We remember the past
The past is the key to understanding the present and planning for the future. Our heritage work includes recovering lost Jewish headstones in Brest, and translating Minsk Ghetto survivors’ memories into English.
We provide for the present
The Together Plan sends 20 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Belarus each year, from clothes to classroom supplies for Jewish Sunday schools to toys and games for disadvantaged children.
Discover Our Work for Yourself
The best way to learn about the work of The Together Plan is by talking to supporters and volunteers at one of our frequent events. They’re always great fun, too!
