Each place follows a set of guiding principles, known as ‘the 5Ps’ for all Places of Welcome

Place: An accessible and hospitable building (open at the same time each week).

People: Open to everyone regardless of their circumstances or situation and staffed by volunteers.

Presence: A place where people actively listen to one another.

Provision: Offering free refreshments and basic local information.

Participation: Recognising that every person coming to a place of welcome will bring talents, experiences and skills that they might be willing to share locally.
