Who we are

We Connect is a FIDEM Charity Foundation project

Who FIDEM are

The FIDEM Charity Foundation is a non-profit organisation providing support and empowerment opportunities to vulnerable people through access to education, arts and culture and wellbeing guidance.

What FIDEM does

Since its inception in 2018, FIDEM has supported vulnerable people with access to educational and creative workshops, vocational assistance and wellbeing guidance. Our goal is to empower our participants with the opportunities they need to increase their confidence and to achieve positive and lasting change in their lives. Our guiding principles are empathy and compassion.

Why FIDEM set up We Connect

FIDEM rapidly began operating a "Hear to Help" Helpline for wellbeing and legal aid concerns in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, in line with our ethos of supporting vulnerable people. We soon learned one of the most frequent wellbeing concerns of our callers was loneliness, particularly amongst older people. We therefore decided to set up We Connect as an innovative, multi-dimensional community designed to support the emotional and mental wellbeing of our members.

What FIDEM aims to achieve through We Connect

The We Connect project will run throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. We want to ensure that our community members, particularly older people, have a safe, positive space where they can prioritise their emotional and mental wellbeing and find happiness in every day. Our ultimate goal is for We Connect to significantly help to turn the tide on the ongoing widespread issue of loneliness in our society.

Please help FIDEM to keep growing We Connect so we can reach more people who need wellbeing support.
