Friendship Cafés

Have fun with friends

Please note that all our activities are subject to change, so the venue, date and time may be different to those shown. Please contact us to check details and to book your place in advance.

Friendship cafes are weekly groups for anyone who feels isolated, wants to make new friends or has experienced bereavement. There are fun activities and guest speakers at every session and outings are planned throughout the year. It’s a great place to meet others for a cuppa and a chat!

The Dementia Café is a place for people with dementia, their families and friends to meet up.

There are seven cafes around the Tendring area, including the Dementia Cafés. You do not need to book a place, however it is a good idea to call 01255 425692 before you plan to attend for the first time so that we can check that the group is going to be at the venue and not scheduled to be on a trip.
