Booking open for June/July conversation cafés!

29th May 2020

At this time it is important that we find ways to talk about wellbeing. This is a chance for those who missed out last time to get involved in our online conversation cafés.

The current COVID-19 situation means that we are all finding new ways to connect with each other. Conversations allow us to share and to learn from others.

So put the kettle on, grab a treat and join us in the conversation café for a good blether about:

  • what we’re doing to stay well
  • what’s helping us to stay well
  • what recovery has to offer us in planning for the future

We would love to hear your experiences, stories and ideas.

How it will work

Each conversation café will be hosted in June / July and facilitated by the Scottish Recovery Network. We want to bring people together with others in their area so there will be six conversation cafés, one in each of the following areas (click the link to book your place – if you have any problems booking please try using another browser e.g. Google Chrome):

Each café will run from 2pm until 3.30pm except the Glasgow evening café which will run from 6.30pm until 8pm.

Really enjoyed it! Nice to hear how other people are personally and professionally coping during these strange times. A very positive and worthwhile experience for me. It was relaxed and the pace was not rushed either – Participant

Small numbers for good conversations

There will be a limit of eight participants in each conversation café so we can have a good conversations where everyone has space to talk. However if there is a lot of demand we will open the café more often and let you know the dates. If you don’t get a place this time please make sure you add your name to the waiting list when booking to gage your interest in future events.

If the conversation café is not opening in your area but you would like to join us let us know and we can arrange that.

Online security & wellbeing

We will be using video conferencing tool Zoom for the conversation café. Your online security & wellbeing is our upmost priority so we will send out instructions on how to access and use this tool safely to those registered before each event. We will also be providing top tips for wellbeing for after the café sessions.

If you would like to take part in the conversation café using only audio rather than video we can accommodate this if you let us know once you have received confirmation of your place by email.


Scottish Recovery Network supports #CommunicationForAll and we are working towards being fully inclusive. If you have any additional needs please let us know and we will do our very best to accommodate them.

If you have any further question please contact: 0141 240 7790 or

We look forward to meeting you in the conversation café :)
