Welcome Cafe

Have you seen our Welcome Cafe campaign? The campaign is aimed at reducing isolation and loneliness by providing a table top sign at cafes that can be placed on the table if a person is happy to have someone join them.

We are thrilled with the amount of local cafes and companies who have signed up to take part and hope that many more will participate and encourage people to have a friendly blether.

So next time you’re out on your own why not look for a ‘Welcome Cafe’? And if you’re a cafe owner then just get in touch with Jim Thompson at FDAMH to find out more!
