Happy To Chat benches

Happy To Chat benches aim to get people talking to one another to improve mental wellbeing and reduce isolation and loneliness.

Seven Happy to Chat benches have been placed in Leicester’s parks and are there for people who want to talk with others. Connecting with other people can help improve mental health and wellbeing and these benches will help people feel less lonely and more connected with their communities.

The benches have colourful plaques on them so they can’t be confused with other benches.

The benches can be found in the following locations:
  • Castle Gardens
  • Victoria Park – Outside Councillor Centre
  • Abbey Park
  • Knighton Park
  • Spinney Hill Park
  • New Walk
  • Evington Library
