- Assist others who need help with technology or social media.

Community Media Cafés offer a chance to socialise with other people from your community and swap stories, advice and knowledge. Community Media Cafés offer opportunities for voices to be heard from people who may otherwise go underrepresented in mainstream media. Community Media Cafés can offer the chance to learn and share skills and projects with each other, for example, if a Community Media Café decided to start a new Community Radio Station the people who contributed would learn new radio skills and share the experience together. The chance to participate in Community Media Cafés can also be positive for personal improvement and can help to build self-confidence in members that join in with Community Media activities.
