Last year we were delighted to share with you the excellent work being undertaken by Local History Cafe, who facilitate heritage and well-being get togethers for over-50s across the Midlands. Since then, an initial evaluation of the programme has been completed and we are pleased to now be able to share the report with you.
The study reveals the experiences of those who attended the programme as well of those who run and organise the Cafés. In doing so, the study considers factors that both help and hinder the effectiveness of Cafes for supporting people with loneliness and social isolation, and how Local History Cafes contribute to the local community.
