Working to build communities and reduce loneliness and isolation.
Loneliness and isolation were exacerbated by the recent COVID-19 pandemic, and have become a daily reality for many people – young, older and everything in between – in the UK. We believe that people of all ages need connections that matter.
Hope Street Social has a mission to build that sense of community and connection here in Sandbach. We are working to reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation by offering a regular meeting space to help people locally build and maintain meaningful connections and relationships.
Along with nature connection, social interaction is clinically proven to help people to feel better and even strengthen the immune system. As our world becomes more digitalised and artificially intelligent, we are hoping to continue to embrace the old ways of meeting in person, to deepen into our personhood and find strength and solidarity with our fellow humans.
We will be offering a weekly programme of creative and inclusive events – hosted on a Sunday morning at Brightstone Clinic – for people to attend, develop a skill, listen to a talk on an interesting topic, make something or just enjoy a cuppa and a chat.
We will share more as the weeks progress, however if you or anyone you know is interested in learning more or coming along, please do get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can keep you up to date with news as things develop.
If you are feeling lonely and isolated for whatever reason, you don't have to do this alone. We have created a warm and welcoming space where you can come and meet other people locally.
When we connect with others in a meaningful way, our immune systems get a boost. Hope Street Social provides you with the opportunity to get out for a while and enjoy the company of others.
Build confidence, learn new skills, develop a hobby, heal from the past.
