Happiness, health and belonging for people struggling with life.
Comas is a social innovation charity using community development to help people find the solutions they need.

We can't keep doing the same things we have always done and expect different results. When people continue to experience isolation, poverty, stigma and fear, we have to recognise that real social change for them requires different thinking, new perspectives and a relentless search for what works.


We are not a charity that is easy to define.
The easy answers are not always the right solutions for people with serious problems - that is why we insist on doing different things with diverse people.
There are core themes to our work:
  • Tackling poverty
  • Solutions to loneliness
  • Reaching out to people who are mentally ill and isolated
  • Helping people recover from addiction and trauma
The bottom line is: we change lives
