5asideCHESS : Reconnecting a Disconnected World

Be a game changer: Help us fight Loneliness and Promote Good Mental Health

5asideCHESS

"Connecting People- Fighting Loneliness and Social Isolation"
5asideChess Venues offer a place for us to reconnect.

5asideCHESS is a not-for-profit Social Enterprise committed to improving connectivity in an increasingly disconnected world. From the cafes of Bristol to the beaches of Brazil, we have a team of HELLO People that use Chess to promote the art of conversation.

Our partner venues host our HELLO People for the day, offering them a few cups of coffee, working with us to promote good mental health, encourage people to connect through talking, listening and making a few mistakes on the 5asideCHESS board.
