What’s On

Head Room Café is now closed to the public. Please click here to find out more

Like many organisations, we are trying to find new ways of working and staying in touch with our community in the current circumstances. People are experiencing a range of reactions and feelings and we want to acknowledge that diversity and open up possibilities for mutual support for many of us who are struggling with physical isolation, uncertainty and other difficult feelings/situations.

Therefore we are setting up a virtual cafe for us to continue building our community, supporting each other and having some fun together. Below is our launch programme for next week that we can try out together. We will use Zoom (zoom.us) to have video sessions, there is more information below for those of you who haven’t used this platform before.

At the end of each session there will be time for your feedback or you can email us with any comments and suggestions. We will leave the meetings open so that people can stay and socialise if they like. Most sessions will last between 40-60 minutes, apart from Kind Co-working, which will be an hour and half.

Launch programme (30th March - 4th April)
