An Accrington-based charity which helps its users become independent and confident will open a new café which will support locals going through difficult times.

The Grief and Loss Café, run by Community Solutions North West, will offer support and give people the opportunity to meet others in a similar situation to them.

Whether you are struggling with your own grief or want to chat about how to support someone close to you, the café will be a safe space that is there to help.

The café will be in Mr Gatty’s Tearoom at Elmfield Hall in Church and will be free to attend.

Starting from July 21, it will run on every third Friday of the month from 9.00am until 10.30am.
