5 What would the Café be? Somewhere people can come and talk in confidence A safe place for addicts to come. A place where you can seek help and other services Warm & Friendly place to be able to come and chat. A place to come and know that you are not alone – similar issues To meet people of the same frame of mind, in recovery or through recovery and clean! A safe, calm meeting place for people in recovery and perhaps run computer classes, health and wellbeing access to services For people to be able to open up and discuss issues without feeling embarrassed.
