We believe having a chat can brighten your day

The Chatty Cafe Scheme aims to get people chatting to build and encourage social connections within the local community, and to help reduce social isolation and loneliness.

Keeping Your Community Connected!

What is The Chatty Cafe Scheme?

The Chatty Café Scheme Australia, a charity, encourages all sorts of hospitality venues across Australia such as cafes, restaurants, clubs, pubs, community centres, libraries, etc to provide a shared Chatty table which is where customers can sit if they are happy to talk to other customers and “Have a Chat”. Chatty Volunteers, if requested by the venue, can sit at the Chatty table to help introduce the concept to customers and chat to them. We provide all promotional information necessary.

How the scheme positively impacts the community

If you are a community focussed venue this is the opportunity for you to support your local customers to connect socially in your safe and comfortable location for a friendly chat – for a few minutes or longer -whatever suits the customer! Your chance to make a difference in your community and be acknowledged for it on the Chatty website and on social media.

For customers,  a “Have a Chat”  table keeps communities connected and brings people together … everyone is invited! If you’re on your own, in a couple, with a friend, if you’re a carer why not sit there with who you care for, mums and babies, dads and babies, grandparents and babies, young people, older people and anyone in between!
