Places of Welcome

What is a Place of Welcome?

A Place of Welcome is a place where anybody can go, where they know they will be warmly welcomed, receive free refreshments and a guarantee of being made to feel valued and included. Attending a Place of Welcome can also help with confidence and improving physical and mental wellbeing. 


There are several Places of Welcome across Walsall, details of which can be found below. ​

Useful information


Following the easing of lockdown restrictions, it has been great to see Places of Welcome opening around the Black Country, Staffordshire and northern Shropshire. Visit the Transforming Communities Together website for details.

Transforming Communities Together are recruiting volunteer buddies within the Walsall area to help people attend and enjoy Places of Welcome until they develop the confidence to go on their own. Details on their website.
