Our goal is simple; to help reduce poverty, social isolation and loneliness by offering a place for people to come and feel welcomed. A place to get a good meal and not have to worry about the bill. A place where we work with local organisations to direct anyone in need of support or help, to be able to get the help they need.
Everything we do is given for free in hope that we can make a difference. If it is a meal or a bit of advice or even to know you have been listened to… that’s why we are here.
On top of that we are aiming to help train anyone needing it, in life skills, cooking, serving and socialising. These skills are perfect to take home to be able to cook a healthy meal or to have the confidence to apply for a job, or even have an input as to how the community café runs.

Our volunteers love getting involved in community activities to both promote the café and their own well being. Being trained in either front of house hospitality or back of house kitchen, our volunteers have been able to boost their skills and self confidence to go on to get jobs.
The Stranraer Scottish Week is a favourite where we all don our costumes and join the float parade.
