KindaKafe is a community hub and cafe that exists to build community and reduce loneliness and social isolation.
We celebrated our fourth birthday in July 2020. Over the last four years the cafe has taken many forms and been shaped by many amazing people. Some have been involved since the start, others have joined us along the way, but every single person has helped us to get to where we are today.
Lots of work has been going on behind the scenes to try and make sure that we can be here to help people today, but still be here helping to grow our fantastic community in years to come.
We will become an independent, sustainable social enterprise within the Missing Kind network working towards our shared aims. This will come with some changes but we are so excited to take the next step in this transformation with a supportive community behind us.
We wanted to let you now that although the Government has announced that cafes can reopen from 4 July, unfortunately we have decided it is not feasible for us to reopen yet. We want to be confident that we can reopen KindaKafe Norwich safely and that it’s also...
