Hi there, Derby Phantoms 👻

In a divided world, Local Welcome thinks it’s important to bring people who are different from each other together so they may share their stories.

We make it fun and easy for you and your friends to cook and eat a meal with people in your community who feel isolated like refugees or older people who live alone.

You are invited to attend a taster session at Churchside Walk Community Room where you will cook and eat with some refugees who live in Derby and experience first hand how easy it is to make a difference in your community.



Spend time with old friends and make new ones.


Share stories

Hear people’s stories and share your own.


Do something great

Be the change you want to see in your community.
