Join us at the kitchen table

Conversation is a powerful thing. Done right, it can lay the foundations for a safety culture – helping people to connect, learn and improve. It’s a way of sharing how we feel and what we think.

DCHS is proud to be joining Sign up to Safety members up and down the country taking part in National Kitchen Table Week.

For many of us the kitchen table is the heart of the home and the heart of family life, where you can talk with your parents, children, siblings and friends.

This is usually a ‘safe place’ where people feel comfortable, can be open, honest and talk about what matters to them, how they are feeling and be listened to in a caring and kind way.

We will be hosting our own Kitchen Table as a way to bring people together and help you share your stories and experiences about what you know about keeping people safer. Like the kitchen table at home, this is a place where people can talk openly and honestly, without judgement and above all be listened to:
