Happy to Share Cards

Lamont, Ruth A. and Hollands, Laura and Silarova, Barbora and Wooldridge, James and Poade, Donna (2020) Happy to Share Cards. University of Exeter and Recovery Devon and Economic and Social Research Council. (KAR id:97870)


Happy to Share Cards (HtSC) are a simple, low-cost initiative aimed at reducing loneliness in the community. By placing a card on their table, a customer can indicate they are happy to share their table with someone else. The present study explores the use of HtSC among early adopters of this initiative and is the first evaluation of their use. An online survey was distributed to businesses known to use HtSC, to ask questions about why they chose to join the initiative, how staff and customers had been interacting with the cards (what was and was not working well), and how/whether they plan to engage with the cards following the Covid-19 pandemic.
