Why we exist.
69% of adults in Britain said they felt happier and more relieved after having a conversation with somebody. (YouGov)
Over 9 million people in the UK across all adult ages are either 'always' or 'often' lonely. (The Co-op and the British Red Cross - 2019)
chit-chat provides a platform for people to have a conversation and interact with others.
At chit-chat, there is a conversation for everyone. Labels don’t define you. Regardless of your gender, age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, background or interests, we’re here to have a proper chit-chat.
We aim to keep the nation connected, emphasising the importance of community and belonging. Everyone is welcome. Everyone’s voice should be heard.
We are the go-to place for a chat and are proactive in tackling loneliness, isolation and promoting positive mental wellbeing.
Who we are.
chit-chat is a new and disruptive non-profit organisation born during a global pandemic. We are providing a casual, inclusive and non-judgmental space for anyone to communicate about anything, whilst tackling loneliness and social isolation head-on.
Our chit-chat LINE, open 9am until 9pm daily, is an anonymous phone line for anyone who fancies a casual chat with one of our amazing volunteers. Whatever the topic, there’s a conversation for everyone. Any conversation is welcome, from the weather, favourite movies or music, to sport, culture and food. We’d love people to grab a brew and give us a call.
We are here to fill a gap in need in the UK, providing people with a place for meaningful conversations, human connections and interactions.
Our mission = To connect the nation through conversation.
Our vision = To create a world where everyone has someone to chat to.
Impact so far.
