Creating community

We are passionate about creating a community, providing safe spaces where people can come together, feel valued, establish friendships and discover a sense of purpose and hope.

What is the Well-being Café?

The Well-being Café is held every Saturday at Ashcroft Church in Ashcroft Road between 9am and 11am.

The café was started in response to the hidden consequences of the pandemic on people’s mental well-being, especially the impact of prolonged social isolation.

At Cirencester Signpost, we strongly believe that hope and encouragement can be found by coming together.

Recognising the importance of mental health to each of us, our  focus is on the benefits of being with friends, making new ones, having a laugh and going away feeling uplifted.

Coming alongside

The café also provides an opportunity to come alongside anyone dealing with personal challenges who needs a listening ear or someone to advocate for them.

We have invested a considerable amount of time and effort establishing relationships with key agencies locally.  This enables us to work effectively together setting up support networks for those wanting to engage, ultimately getting lives back on track.

It's all about you

We recognise stepping over the threshold can be daunting, one of our volunteer team will always be available to welcome you and ensure you feel comfortable.

If you want to speak to someone before coming on a Saturday to talk through any concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

We will always give you the space you need.

What is on offer?

No charge is made at our café as it is important to us that no obstacle is placed in the way of those needing a hand up.

The menu includes:

  • bacon rolls or toasted bacon sandwiches
  • sausage baps or toasted sausage sandwiches
  • toast
  • fruit salad
  • cereals; along with hot drinks and fruit juices.
