- Currently due to COVID19 Chatty Cafés have not been operational, we are in the process of making contact with re-launching tables, offering virtual cafes online and recuirting volunteers to match up with venues to kick start conversations.
City of Wolverhampton Council and the West Midlands Combined Authority are pleased to announce that the Chatty Cafés scheme has now been rolled out across the City following the launch on 21st November 2019.
