Talking Cafes

Talking Cafes are an information cafe providing you with the advice and support you need, you can DROP IN at venues across Somerset & watch our weekly online live session.

Are you are looking for information, advice, and support – or just a friendly ear and a chat? Pop along to one of the Talking Café events, or tune in on Facebook for our weekly live session.

Both online and in-person Talking Cafes are run by Village and Community Agents, who help local people find the help, information, and support they need.

Talking Cafes are a great support if you are looking for help and advice on important services such as caring for another, housing, health, finance, adult social care, children’s services, feelings of loneliness & isolation – anything that is worrying you.
