Coffee Connect

Coffee Connect trailer We're on the road combatting loneliness through free coffee and chat.

Come and say hi, we'd love to meet you.

Befriending is when two people arrange a convenient time to talk over the phone and then agree on what things they would like to talk about. You can choose what you want to talk about, it might be sharing how you feel, or it might be discussing the latest football results, it really doesn’t matter!

Our befrienders are matched with people who are experiencing loneliness and the important thing is, that they have something to look forward to and know there is someone who will dedicate a set amount of time, to really listen to them.
