What is The Chatty Cafe Scheme?

The Chatty Café Scheme is the UK’s leading non-profit organisation tackling loneliness.

We offer three services, all designed to reduce loneliness and/or social isolation. They include;

  • Face to face meet ups where venues offer ‘Chatter & Natter’ tables, where customers can get together and chat. We have hundreds of venues around the UK, many Chatter & Natter tables are hosted by Chatty Table Volunteers.
  • Online Chatty Cafe Sessions held every Tuesday and Thursday from 1pm – 1:30pm. Anyone over 18 can join, simply to chat to others.
  • Telephone Friendship Service for anyone over 18 who is experiencing loneliness and could benefit from a weekly chat on the phone.

We have a wonderful team of volunteers who help deliver the above services. Please visit our ‘Volunteers’ page to find out more about our volunteering roles.
