Forward MID and The ALLIANCE would like to invite you to come to Cafe Connect and join in with a Conversation Café hosted in partnership with the Health and Social Care Academy. The conversation café is an opportunity for citizens to engage with each other and share their views on:

  • What is needed to help you live well in the future?
  • What support do we need in Scotland to live healthier lives?

The café will provide an opportunity for constructive conversations around health and wellbeing which will form part of a dialogue on the future of health and social care in Scotland.
The ALLIANCE is committed to working with Scottish Government to ensure that all voices are heard, especially seldom heard voices and those of people with lived experience. Your views matter and are key to the conversation.
Café Connect is a vibrant community café run by Forward Mid. It gives disabled people a chance to meet up to talk and listen. Café Connect is a great place to find out useful information about a whole range of relevant supports and services; Welfare Reform, Access Issues, Self- Directed Support; a friendly gathering where everyone is welcome; a place where you can listen in, share your story, or just turn up for a coffee, tea and cake on the house!
