This community hub was set up in 2021 and in two short year has entrenched itself at the heart of village life. Staffed by a committed band of volunteers TouchPoint runs a broad spectrum of services and activities for the community, both young and old residents alike.
TouchPoint Stansted Café: hot and cold drinks and snacks are served Thursdays 11am to 5pm, and Fridays from 10am to 12pm. Hot meals also served on Thursdays from 12.30pm to 2.30pm. Other than a place to catch up with friends, the Cafe also has community laptops to use and an opportunity to get advice from Citizens Advice.
