Armed Forces Community Outreach Events

Veterans' Cafes 

Veterans' Cafes aim to fill the void caused by isolation and detachment after Service whilst also providing a platform for social interaction and comradery. They also provide an opportuity to offer an early intervention service to those who are experiencing poor emotional and mental health. The Cafes are run by Telford Mind who provide trained staff who are able to signpost veterans to Service, and non-Service, Charities and Groups where necessary. The Cafes are funded by Telford & Wrekin Council.

The Cafes are available on a drop-in basis so there is no need to book:

  • Dawley: every second and fourth Monday of the month, 2pm to 4pm, at Dawley House, 22 Burton Street, Dawley, TF4 2ES.
  • Madeley: every third Thursday of the month, 5pm to 7pm, at Jubilee House, 74 High Street, Madeley, TF7 5AH.

Both sites are wheelchair accessible and have parking close by.
