Coffee, Chat & Connect sessions from MARR

Working Together To Support Our Community

Who are we?

Previously known as Let's Get Chatty our Befriending with MARR community led initiative is here to help residents in Medway tackle loneliness and isolation and provide both telephone befriending and monthly face to face sessions across Medway.

We are a group of volunteers who are available to speak with anyone who've been cut off from their support structures - be that community, friends or family.  We aim to bridge the gap of isolation with this simple act of kindness.
