Happy to Chat North Shields

North Tyneside VODA, working in collaboration with Whitley Bay Big Local and members of the SIGN Network are developing Happy To Chat schemes across North Tyneside

These session are aimed at reducing loneliness and isolation by offering the chance to share a cuppa and a chat with opportunity to meet new people

Happy To Chat badges will be given out so anyone who wants to start a conversation can identify those wanting to have a friendly chat with someone new

The scheme is about kindness, taking the time to listen to others and making connections in the local community

Happy To Chat will host a fortnightly drop in located in The Beacon Shopping Centre In the public space next to the library

The fist session will be part of a launch day on Tuesday the 28th January 2020

Come along between 10.00 am and 3.00 pm

Anyone who would like to pop along will be welcomed with a cuppa and a chat

The service is Free

If you would like more information please contact Josie

We also hold a Happy to Chat session on Thursday at Whitley Bay Big Local

We are keen to extend the scheme into other locations, if you are a cafe or community venue we would like to hear from you about hosting Happy To Chat Sessions
