TALKING Cafés are taking place across Somerset to provide communities with a place to get advice and support from local village agents.

The Talking Cafés can benefit people who are looking for help with caring for another person, housing, health, finance, food boxes, adult social care, children’s services, feelings of loneliness and isolation or anything else that is worrying them.

The events are organised by Somerset Village and Community Agents, which is part of the Community Council for Somerset (CCS).

You do not need to book to attend a Talking Café near you.

You can also tune into online live sessions, every Wednesday at 1pm, available on YouTube, Twitter or Facebook.
