What is a Welcoming Space?

Welcoming Spaces are run by local people for local people from the voluntary, community and faith sectors across West Northamptonshire.  Residents are offered a warm, trusted setting for people to socialise and access services tackling social isolation and cost of living challenges.  They are also non-judgmental and safe, all guests are treated equally, with dignity and respect.  For more information please see Looking for welcoming spaces | West Northamptonshire Council (westnorthants.gov.uk)

What is the Chatty Café Scheme?

The Chatty Café Scheme is the UK’s leading non-profit organisation tackling loneliness.  Within West Northamptonshire we offer face to face meet ups where venues offer ‘Chatter and Natter’ tables, where customers can get together and chat. There are hundreds of venues around the UK, many Chatter and Natter tables are hosted by Chatty Table Volunteers and designed to reduce loneliness and/or social isolation.  For further information see Chatty Café Scheme | West Northamptonshire Council (westnorthants.gov.uk)

What is a Good Neighbours Scheme?

Good Neighbours Schemes are established and run by local people to provide day-to-day support for other residents who may need help on an occasional or regular basis.  The aim is to support neighbours to maintain a good quality of life, remain independent in their own homes if they wish to, and reduce their reliance on statutory health and care support systems.  Working in partnership with Northants ACRE there are many across West Northamptonshire.  For further information please view here Good Neighbours Scheme | West Northamptonshire Council (westnorthants.gov.uk)
