Places of Welcome

In this Podcast interview, I talk to James Henderson from Places of Welcome.

Places of Welcome is a network of small community organisations,  who offer an unconditional welcome to local people for at least a few hours a week.

I know of them because there is a weekly place of welcome in my part of Birmingham.

The primary aim of the Places of Welcome network is that “Every neighbourhood has places where all people feel safe to belong, connect and contribute.”


I asked James from Places of Welcome to tell us more.
