Feel Good Cafe Goes From Strength to Strength!

In the midst of a global pandemic, another hidden public health crisis has emerged: Loneliness, the subjective feeling that results from social isolation. The condition affects people of all ages and is a significant health risk, particularly for older adults and those with chronic conditions.

A recent study from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine found that social isolation has been associated with an increased risk of developing dementia and premature mortality. Loneliness is rising among the younger people as well,  COVID-19 is exacerbating the loneliness epidemic and one major healing tool is human connection.

The launch of the Feel Good Cafe in mid May offered a rare opportunity for the local community to meet regularly for a chat over a coffee but this has since grown into a focal meeting point where new friendships have been formed.

Every Tuesday the cafe opens it's doors to the local community, all ages are welcome, some are familiar faces to Enrych who are already benefitting from an Enrych service - others come along after months of being isolated, seeing noone and revelling in the fact that they are now able to catch up for a chat or join in with the activities on offer.

The Feel Good Cafe has been funded by a generous donation from local housebuilder Cadeby Homes who have previously supported national charities but wanted to support someone more local where they could see the benefit their support was having on their local community. 

Bethan Morgan, Sales Executive from Cadeby Homnes said "It is important to Cadeby Homes that we are part of the whole project and being in the same locality as Enrych means we can go to the Feel Good Cafe and see how our donation is benefitting those coming to the cafe," Bethan added "We are looking forward to our partnership with Enrych, our values are very similar and we are hopeful our relationship will be long term."

Sam from Enrych met Bethan recently to talk about their donation and our partnership. Watch the video here
