The sessions in venues in Albrighton and Cleobury Mortimer are organised by Shropshire Council and will provide help and expert advice over a cup of coffee.

Topics that can be discussed with various organisations include housing support, children’s health and wellbeing, healthy living, getting older, family life, help with drug and alcohol problems, fire service support, public health nursing, dementia, domestic abuse support and financial advice.
