Operator East Yorkshire is continuing its efforts in the fight against loneliness and social isolation by bringing back its ‘Chatty Bus,’ a project raising awareness of loneliness in society. This year, the company is partnering with Age UK Hull to bring chat and friendship to the region, helping the charity to recruit new people for its befriender scheme.

On Wednesday 26 January, the Chatty Bus visited Beverley with a team of chatty ambassadors keen to talk to anyone who wanted a natter, and was also available for people to sign up to be Age UK Hull befrienders. This event follows the company’s popular Chatty Bus events in previous years, when 50 buses across the region became ‘chatty buses’ for the day.
