What is Sol Cafe?
Sol Cafe opened its doors to the public on the 21st June 2021, and they have been bathed in a warmth and gratitude from the community since then for creating a wholesome safe space for the most marginalised within the community. Feeling the impact Sol Cafe has been having is the energy they draw on to keep on providing the necessary space and platform for the ones who need it the most.
The main aims of the project is to create an inclusive safe space for the most marginalised in the LGBTIQ+ community, Black and POC, neurodivergent, asylum seekers, refugees and homeless.

The expected impact is to reduce isolation, increase inclusion and a sense of belonging, as well as developing new skills and creating new bonds within the LGBTIQ+ community.
