Tired of small talk? Join the conversation!

VOCAL’s ‘Conversation Cafes’ take place weekly at one of four locations in Edinburgh.

So often carers can feel left out of the conversation as their experiences and situation can set them apart from others. VOCAL aims to allow carers to join in and be part of the conversation.

Conversation cafes are open drop-in sessions, bringing together people interested in sharing and discussing thoughts and ideas on a theme over a coffee and in a relaxed, informal space. They are structured to ensure that everyone who wants to gets a chance to share and reflect.
