Community Cafe

Tackling social isolation and loneliness our free Community Cafe has gone from strength since 2017. Blossom Project identified an urgent need to tackle social isolation and loneliness facing older people and vulnerable adults. We were particularly inspired to act as a response to the Tower Hamlets Mental Health Strategy. Funded by Poplar and Limehouse Health Network, the Communty Café hosts weekly Tea and Coffee mornings. Total participants of this be-friending service have been 317 during 2019/20. Our volunteers work tirelessly to ensure that local people have a warm and friendly place to meet and connect with other residents. They organise many activities such as discussions, light exercise sessions, arts and crafts and day trips for all to enjoy. Creating lasting memories and lifetime friendships.

‘Our intergenerational activities aim to bring people together, promoting greater understanding and respect between generations and contribute to building a cohesive community whilst tackling loneliness and contributing to health and social wellbeing’
