Feeling lonely, isolated or need a MATE to talk to? Meet with a MATE at your local cafe and get the support you need.
MATES Cafe is here for you when you are going through crisis. We understand that we all go through challenges in life, just as you are and when we have, we have reached out to a MATE for support. MATES recognise the benefits of having someone to talk to and just being there for us. We therefore want to be there for someone else when they need a shoulder to lean on. After all, isn't that what MATES are for?
NOTE: If you either need a MATE or wish to become a MATE, please click on the buttons above respectively. All other enquiries please go to "Contact Us" or "Refer Someone" (under the contact tab) Thank You.
