Community Business Cafes
Our Community Business Cafes ([email protected] cafes) are operated as normal commercial cafes which serve the general public. They are managed by a Rochdale and District Mind member of staff assisted by volunteers and peer supporters who have experience of mental health.
The cafés create a viable alternative work experience and training options, which reflect the needs of people with mental health issues in the Borough of Rochdale. The café projects are a safe and supportive environment for those who attend, and their views are listened to and respected.
We aim to promote a positive image of mental health by keeping high standards and offering a good quality service.
If you are interested in getting involved please speak to a member of our staff or complete a referral form which can be found here
One of our service users who was accessing our cafes wrote a poem for us:
If you want a good snack on a café,
That’s as clean as a whistle, for sure.
[email protected] is awaiting your custom:
There’s sandwiches, tea and much more.
The staff make the customers welcome;
They serve you with smiles and with care.
So come and enjoy this experience-
The answer to everyone’s prayer.
