Places of Welcome

Joining the Places of Welcome Network

You can join the network and become a Place of Welcome if you: 

  • Already have an existing drop-in style activity that you would like to be added to the map or 
  • You would like to set up a new Place of Welcome in your community.

The main criteria for becoming a Place of Welcome is that you are agree with and honor all of the values and ethos - the 5P's, found here


The network is based on trust, respect and generosity and simply making a commitment to the 5P's in the life of your Place of Welcome. 

Coordinator Role: Along with a commitment to the 5 P’s, each Place Of Welcome needs a coordinator who can manage it on a week by week basis; acting as the point of contact, supporting volunteers, connecting with the wider Places Of Welcome network, and manage signposting information. 

Get in touch: Please get in touch with your Area Co-ordinator if you'd like to get involved and become part of our network. Click here for further information about how to contact us.

Publicity materials: Once you’ve spoken to the Area Co-ordinator and signed up to the 5P's we will give you access to our approved logos and publicity materials, so that you can then begin to advertise yourself as part of the Places of Welcome network. Please don’t use our branding until you’ve officially joined the network.
