Community tea and coffee sessions
Let's reduce social isolation
In the face of challenging times and the ongoing cost of living crisis, Enfield residents have been finding comfort and connection through a heartwarming initiative – coffee and tea sessions hosted by various community centers, places of worship, and charitable organisations throughout the borough.
One such gathering takes place every Tuesday morning at the Rumi Mosque, where individuals from all walks of life come together to share a cup of tea and engage in meaningful conversations. The Samaritans host their session on Wednesdays, providing a safe space for those who may be feeling overwhelmed or alone.
Southgate Mosque, a local foodbank, offers a unique service with a caravan tea station. Enact, Oasis Hadley, NYCC, Zebras cafe and many other community organisations across Enfield have joined the effort, creating numerous opportunities for people to connect.
It's not just about the drinks and conversations; many foodbanks/food pantries , for instance, The Methodist Church on Fore Street also offer a warm and inviting space for individuals in need . Edmonton Library opens its doors every Tuesday morning, inviting visitors to enjoy a cozy atmosphere complete with tea and toast.
These welcoming gatherings have become an essential means to combat social isolation and foster a sense of togetherness among local residents. They offer an array of activities ranging from art sessions to knitting circles and natter sessions, catering to diverse interests and tastes.

In these challenging times, with the rising cost of living affecting countless individuals and families, these gatherings play a vital role. They offer a lifeline for those who might otherwise find themselves isolated and struggling to cope with the pressures of daily life.
These initiatives exemplify the strength of community spirit in Enfield, with neighbours coming together to ensure that no one feels alone during difficult times. The power of a simple cup of tea or coffee, becoming a symbol of warmth, comfort, and unity.
If you or someone you know is feeling isolated or in need of support, do not hesitate to explore these welcoming spaces across Enfield. In times of adversity, these connections can make all the difference, reminding us that we are never truly alone in our community.
Today's 'I feel good' session as part of the Enfield pathways Integrated consortium (EPiC) was extremely important for the people who attend the local foodbank/pantries in Edmonton and from different parts for Enfield.
Families are facing huge increase in cost of living and their mental well-being is being neglected as they have so much to juggle from making decisions on buying food, running the washing machine, switching on lights, keeping their children warm.
By providing the pamper sessions we are able to help people improve their mental well-being.
