Nuneaton Community Cafe

Guideposts Trust invites you to our: ‘Thank you and Goodbye’ Event

‘It has been such a tough decision for Guideposts to close the café.  Especially after all the hard work from the whole team who have been greatly engaged with the local community’   – Directors Diane Perry, Kate Worrall and Ian Cumming

FRIDAY 29th MAY 2015  1-2pm

We want to thank the many people who have supported the café over the years.  So please join us on our last day of trading and help to give the café the warm send-off it so deserves.

You can also find out more about how we will continue to offer out Carer Support Services across the county.  Regular customers please speak to a member of the team on the day for a voucher to receive a complimentary drink and cake.  We hope to see you there!


The best thing about the Community Café is that it’s friendly, affordable and accessible. There’s plenty of space for wheelchairs and pushchairs, and the food’s great, too!” (Café Customer, Nuneaton)

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
