Did you know that Places of Welcome exist across Dudley borough?

Places of Welcome are run by local community groups who want everyone in their neighborhood to have a place to go for a friendly face, a free hot drink and a conversation if and when they need it.

Each Place of Welcome is unique but all provide a place for people to connect with one another, find belonging and offer gifts and skills that interest them.

Places of Welcome take place in a variety of different venues including churches, community centers, libraries, mosques, temples and other community group buildings.

If you are visiting a Place of Welcome for the first time, check with the venue that they will be open as usual.
