Laverstock Care Centre Takes A Stand Against Loneliness With Chatty Café Partnership

29th January 2024

Laverstock Care Centre has joined forces with the Chatty Café Scheme, a prominent non-profit organisation dedicated to combating loneliness across the UK.

In an effort to promote social connections and alleviate isolation, the care home in Salisbury is proud to host a Chatty Café on the last Thursday of every month, 10am - 12pm. Our friendly team extend a warm invitation to the local community, encouraging everyone to participate in what we hope will be a really useful ongoing event.

Let's come together, share stories, and forge connections that brighten each other's lives.

What is the Chatty Café Scheme?

The Chatty Café Scheme offers various services to combat loneliness, including face-to-face meetups at venues with designated "Chatter & Natter" tables. These tables encourage individuals to come together and engage in conversation. Additionally, the organisation hosts online Chatty Café Sessions and provides a 'Telephone Friendship Service' for those experiencing loneliness.

Volunteers play a pivotal role in delivering these services and the Chatty Café Scheme welcomes individuals passionate about making a difference. To learn more about volunteering opportunities, visit their dedicated "Volunteers" page.
