Cafe Connect

Cafe Connect

Loneliness is an increasing issue for people as they get older so we’re delighted to be helping Deanburn Primary School in an effort to tackle this.

Cafe Connect gives a space for the children of Deanburn EPS to develop their life and social skills and, before the cafe opens, the children prepare the refreshments, set the tables etc as this gives a great opportunity to help grow their independence. That’s followed by an hour of activities, games and chat with the adults plus a lot of laughs!

The impact this has had on both the children and adults involved has been massive and we’ve had lots of amazing feedback like this:

“My child who is 5 gets so excited when she knows that she is going to the group. She has only been attending the group for 3 weeks & I can see a difference in her. She now wants to help make dinner, set table & clean up. The teacher & helpers puts so much effort into running the club.”

We’ve even branched out into trips to the panto and went carol singing in December but we’re not stopping there!

So are you, or anyone you know, looking for some company? Fancy a blether with a cuppa? Or want to join in a singalong of some old favourites?  Then come along to Cafe Connect  in the Church Hall every Wednesday from 10.30am to 11.30am during School Term.
