Community Cafes

KDP was delighted to receive funding from the Communities Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund to enable the creation of four Community Cafes within Kincardine and Mearns.

KDP engaged with the local communities to ensure there was a need and then encouraged local people to volunteer.   This has proved to be a great success with all four cafes still running on a weekly basis, now run fully by the volunteers with KDP on hand to offer support if needed.

The funding was used to purchase the necessary equipment to set up the cafes; food hygiene training; advertising; as well as the hall hire and refreshments for the initial 20 week period.

Due to the success of the Community Cafe initiative, KDP created a How To Guide, to assist other communities set up their own cafes.
