What we're about

We host three friendly conversation groups in three different local cafes every week. Our conversations are an opportunity for people who have moved here from overseas to:

• meet others they might not usually meet

• expand their language skills

• share stories, experiences and ideas

• develop new insights

• build friendships

• gain confidence

• learn about their local area

• and feel more at home in Leith.

The conversation hosts have a wide knowledge of support agencies, information services and local activities that they can share with participants when it is helpful. And three times a month we also invite workers from other organisations to join in our conversations and to share information with the group.

The conversations are gently structured so that everyone has a chance to speak and be heard, however shy or confident they feel and no matter how many words of English they know.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

Online conversation session

ONLINE

So there it is! Our online Leith Conversation Cafes!
We hope you will join us from your home with a cuppa of your favorite warm drink or juice to have all those conversations which are worth having.
Our conversations bring people together to share their experiences and explore important topics. We believe that those conversations can be even more important during the time of social distancing, so we want to keep them running.
So if you want to meet new people to spend some time exploring different topics, join us this Sunday.

HOW TO JOIN THE CONVERSATION:

Please join the event. The participants from the RSVP list will receive the link to our online conversation on a day of the meeting.
We will be using Google Hangouts Meet which you can use easily on your computer via browser or on your phone (for that you will have to install an app from App Store).
All the participants who will sign up for the conversation will receive a link to the conversation. You will only need to click on the link, write your name and ask to join the conversation. And enjoy a good conversation, nice company and a cuppa
