We opened Community Corner in Chelmsford’s indoor market in October 2022, in partnership with City of Chelmsford Mencap and with the support of Chelmsford Markets.
This café serves hot food and a warm welcome to anyone who pops by, as well as expert information about local services, charity pop-ups, volunteering opportunities, activities and events.
Food and drink is carefully made and served by students from City Mencap’s In!Catering enterprise, which holds a 5-star hygiene rating and a 50-star enthusiasm level. The café provides a safe space for the students to learn, and to practice their skills for the future.
Community Corner is currently open every Wednesday, with more regular days and pop-ups to follow.
Keep checking back here for more information.
