Cafes in communities

Are you involved in running a café in a local community (geographical or shared interest) run for local people and/or by local people on a charitable, ‘not for profit’or enterprise basis?

Whether your café is informal in a community centre or church, set up as a social enterprise, community interest company or other, run 1 day or 5 days, CFHS want to hear from you.

CFHS are working in partnership with Senscot and café networks across Scotland. We want to highlight the contribution that cafes make in supporting communities health and wellbeing, and find out what would help make sure cafes in communities are, and continue to be, seen as valuable assets and sustainable?

Please complete our short survey, feel free to tell us a bit more about your café and let us know if we can contact you.
