Places of Welcome
Places of Welcome is a growing network of local community groups providing their neighbourhoods with places where all people feel safe to belong, connect and contribute. A Place of Welcome offers your neighbourhood a place where everyone can go for a friendly face, a cup of tea and a conversation if and when they need it.
Each Place of Welcome offers:
+ PLACE – An accessible and hospitable building, open at the same time every week
+ PEOPLE – Open to everyone, regardless of their circumstances or situation, and staffed by volunteers
+ PRESENCE – A place where people actively listen to one another
+ PROVISION – Offering free refreshment (e.g. a cup of tea and a biscuit) and basic local information
+ PARTICIPATION – Every person will bring talents, experiences and skills that they may be willing to share locally
Places of Welcome operate in a growing number of church buildings and community centres in Staffordshire. Find more information about when and where here.
