Social Space

What is Social Space?

Social space takes place at Barnes house and is a pressure free place where you can mix and make friends.

Stack of mugsThe space is facilitated by Volunteers and people who use the service. This means that you can help out and contribute something if you wish, or just take advantage of the peer support, access to computers, WIFI, free refreshments, subsidised light meals, and individual practical and emotional support.

There are coproduced activities too, so people who attend the space can co-create events and groups alongside those that facilitate the space.

What can Social Space help me achieve?

Social Space is a great way to increase your sense of belonging through developing friendships and increase through the coproduced nature of the service can also be a first step into volunteering for those who wish to become more involved.
