Guideposts’ Community Café is open six days a week serving a great range of freshly cooked food. Whether it’s a light lunch, a snack or a great Cappuccino, the Community Café has just what you need to fill that gap. We also make our own soup freshly every day, served with fresh crusty bread and our own fantastic ice-cream! We only use fresh, quality ingredients which we source locally wherever possible.

As well as great food, the Community Café hosts seasonal events and celebrations and a number of workshops, support and well-being sessions.   There are  also  computers for you to use if you wanted to use the Internet or email. Guideposts’ Community Café is based right in the centre of Nuneaton, near to all the shops, the library and banks, with plenty of parking nearby.

The Community Café can also be hired privately for your meetings, one-off events or special occasion, and we also have our own catering service,  that can meet  your catering needs.  For quotations please contact Sandra on the below number or email.

Our Community Café also supports people through our innovative training and work placement and experience schemes.

The Community Café has a wide entrance for easy access, with a double push-button automatic door-opener and a disabled lavatory. All tables are set out to ensure there is plenty of space for wheelchairs, motorised vehicles and pushchairs.

Safe Places Logo  Safe Places Scheme Launches in Warwickshire

Community Café, Nuneaton is a SAFE PLACE

Community Café, Nuneaton supports the  Safe Places Scheme

People with learning disabilities will now have Safe Places to go if they are feeling unsafe or vulnerable around Warwickshire.

Warwickshire County Council and Warwickshire Police have joined forces to implement the scheme across the county with local retailers, libraries and community organisations already signed up to the Safe Places scheme.

Over 65 Safe Places are now signed up to the scheme across all five Warwickshire Districts and boroughs:

Leamington Spa & Warwick, Stratford Upon Avon

Rugby, Nuneaton & Bedworth, Atherstone & Coleshill

We are looking to extend the scheme and increase the number of Safe Places across the County.

A list of registered safe Places can be found on the follow-ing webpages:

People with Learning Disabilities have also volunteered to become Safe Place Champions and support the scheme by visiting registered Safe Places and reviewing them regular-ly in partnership with Police Community Support Officers.

For more information about the Safe Places Scheme, to request a Hate Crime Card or if you are interested in be-coming a Safe Place Champion – please contact Hardip
