Places to talk

Project update 

Due to the rise in Covid-19 cases and the emergence of the omicron variant in Cumbria, the Places to Talk project has been put on hold until April 2022. 

If you'd like to keep up to date about the project register to find out more.

When the project is up and running again, we will email you with more information, to let you know how you can get involved.  


Background on the Places to Talk Project

The Places to Talk project will help to bring people together to talk about their experiences of living through the pandemic and to share their hopes for the future. We want to help people across Cumbria to come together and have a "place to talk". If you're part of a club or a group in Cumbria and you think that your group might be interested in sharing and listening to each other's stories of the pandemic, then this project is for you. We are making a short 10-minute video and some clips that tell different people from Cumbria's stories about the pandemic. We will have some resources that can help you to think about how to hold the session and that point you to other sources of support if people need it. If you need a bit of financial help to hold your session, to do things like to cover room hire for your group, or for tea and cake then we can help with that too.
