Rosyth Social Cafe
The Rosyth Social Cafe helps older people who are isolated, lonely or affected by illness to become more involved in their local communities
The social cafes are run by a group of volunteers who help carers and people with dementia to live positive and fulfilling lives.
What do we do
We recruit and support individuals to become volunteers who can then be matched with an older person to help them attend a social group, provide help with simple practical tasks or just to meet to go shopping or go out for a coffee.
The befriending service gives older people much needed companionship and encouragement to become more involved in social activities.
How we help
We have a number of volunteers who run a social cafe each Wednesday at Parkgate Community Centre, Rosyth from 10.00am - 12.00pm
The café is a real lifeline for the local community whilst offering valuable respite to carers - who are in most cases family members.
The volunteers organise a range of activities and trips for the members who attend as well as getting local schools and organisations along.
I had been feeling isolated but now I get a laugh and feel part of the community. I couldn’t go out much so nice to have some company.Social Cafe Member
