The Key Cafe - Ipswich

Coronavirus Support

The Key Cafe re-opened yesterday (2nd September).  We have all the relevant Coronavirus guidelines in place, including a risk assessment.  Our Listening Service is still available if you need to speak to someone.  Our menu is restricted at present (no m,ain meals) due to staff shortages and our opening times for now are 10am-2pm.  Once we have been open for a few weeks, we will re-visit our staff availability and adjust the menu accordingly.

Do you need someone to turn to?

You may feel you don't need "in-depth" counselling, but, maybe you do need someone who will help you focus and think about what's going on in your life. You can see someone trained to listen, trained to understand feelings that maybe you have kept to yourself for a long time.
