Resource Cafés

How they work:

Our Good Neighbours groups are supported and encouraged by each other to offer training, advice and events – which are all available from the Hub. One of our main methods of effective network support is through our successful local Resource Cafés. Their secret ingredients? Well, professional advice, sharing of ideas, challenges and solutions. Topics include recruiting and retaining volunteers, reaching volunteers through social media and connecting isolated folk through a befriending scheme.

The Local Resource Cafés are great for general advice and support, meeting other local groups and collecting any GNN publications. No question is ever too small or too daft. Any member of a group or someone interested in volunteering for a GNN group is welcome to come and join us. There is always quality coffee, delicious cakes and accessible access. The Resource Cafés are on a drop-in basis and all Good Neighbours are welcome. If you need a specific appointment (especially for private matters) either before or after the Resource Café please contact us on

All venues have free WiFi 

Our Spring Resource Cafe events have now finished.
Please keep an eye out for future dates.
