Tea and Talk Online


Tea and Talk online sessions are for anyone living in South Glos to meet and share their own experiences.

Come and meet new people, learn from each other and share what helps to improve and maintain good emotional wellbeing.

The group is facilitated by a wellbeing coach to ensure everyone always feels welcome and ensure that it's a safe space to talk.

Online sessions are approximately 1 hour and you are welcome to join or leave the session at any point.

Group rules

  • Respect each other
  • Give space to each other
  • No swearing at each other
  • If we are worried about anyone we will do what is needed to keep them safe
  • What is said online, stays online
  • If you need to leave the chat, message someone in the chat, so we know you are OK.

We ask everyone to have a private space when they join a session in the same way that we have a private space when we all meet face to face.

Tips for joining the group

Things that may help when joining online peer support:

  • If you have earphones with a microphone – use these as it is usually easier to hear others, and we can hear you better.
  • If you are not speaking ‘mute’ your microphone.
  • You may find the connection better if you download the Android App or iOS App but you do not need to have the App to join in.
  • If you get stuck with any of the IT - get in touch by emailing
  • You can also join the session using a mobile phone or landline phone, details will be sent when you have booked a session.
