Talk to me is all about finding ways for people to talk to each other. We believe that so many good things - big or small - can happen from a simple conversation between strangers. We know that talking brings about many benefits, from a greater sense of wellbeing, to friendlier communities and increased opportunities. Think about it - just one conversation can inspire us, reassure us or brighten up our day.
We want to create more of these situations by encouraging conversations between people that wouldn’t usually talk. One of our solutions is the Talk to me badge, which shows others that you won't bite and that you’re up for a chat - thus breaking down barriers that often keep us silent. Other solutions include bringing together people who don’t know each other to sit down to eat a meal together, and ‘Talk to me takeovers’ where we takeover the format of a normal activities, e.g. a pub quiz, so that we can get more people talking.
