Outline

The Community Café is open every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, from 9:30am until 1.30 pm. The cafe is open to everyone. We keep our prices low to be accessible to those on low or no income and we have compassionate staff and volunteers who are there to listen to people who just need a safe space to talk.  We also have a network of partnerships who we can arrange to provide advice and support to those in need, struggling with any issue, from housing and homelessness, to benefits issues and financial struggles, addictions, mental health issues and anything else that comes up. For those that are street homeless we may also provide free hot drinks and meals and a shower where needed. The café is such a great place and is making a real difference in our community. Are you the right person to take it forward?
