With a team of dedicated volunteers we aim to support and nourish those on our island in difficulty, in the justice system, in distress or in need.

The Caritas Cafe is a place of welcoming, acceptance and belonging; a safe place to meet and make friends, a place where we try to break down barriers between those who apparently have much and those who apparently have little. It offers an opportunity to learn, volunteer and work together for the benefit of the community.

Here we work with a huge variety of people with different life experiences – the broken and broken hearted, those suffering from a variety of addictions, those suffering from mental illness, the lonely and isolated, the unemployed, the homeless, ex-offenders, family breakdown, poor physical health.

The Caritas Community Cafe in Mill Street is run almost exclusively by volunteers so we are able to charge very reasonable prices.
