Happy to Share

Introducing version two of my ‘Happy to Share’ cards. I was incredibly lucky that James from Recovery Devon applied for and was successful in receiving community lottery funding. These funds have enabled 50,000 of my cards to be printed and we are in the process of distributing them across the UK.

Exeter University has also secured funding to conduct research into the viability of the cards. Do they really work to help to reduce loneliness?

All very exciting and resulting from a simple idea I had way back in 2015.

Here is a link to a radio interview today August 1st 2019.

Today James was interviewed by BBC Radio Devon unexpectedly while out and about. He talked about Happy to share and Recovery Devon. If you’d like to hear him you can do so here (starting 2:22).

Spread the love for Happy To Share, we’ve had lots of requests for cards already and they’re clearly doing their bit in tackling social isolation.
