Isolation 1

Join us at one of our two Places of Welcome networking and training events

Interested in tackling isolation and loneliness in your area? Want to connect more with your local community? Join us at one of our two Places of Welcome events in February and March to find out more!

What is ‘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.

It is a simple and effective model that uses the power of relationships to tackle loneliness and isolation and make a real difference in peoples’ lives. In addition, Places of Welcome network and signpost to other organisations and services – opening up access for people to make the most of their local communities.

Effective in its simplicity, this initiative has now spread to over 350 centres across the UK and in the wider Liverpool area there are now 40 Places of Welcome– with the interest and numbers growing steadily.

At the events, attendees will get a chance to:

  • Hear from current Places of Welcome
  • Network with organisations, agencies and services that complement community work
  • Learn how to overcome common problems (volunteering, funding, support, partnerships)
  • Receive training on ‘what it takes’ to be a Place of Welcome
  • Sign up to be a Place of Welcome (if they haven’t already)

Who Should Attend?

If you are already a Place of Welcome – or are interested in knowing more about this growing network of change-makers then this event is definitely for you.

This event is also relevant for Neighbourhood Officers, Community Workers, CVS Officers, CAB Officers, faith organisations looking to expand their engagement with their local community, small group leaders, volunteers and more!
