Spoon Café is a peer-led group for people with lived experience of chronic pain and energy-limiting conditions.


The group informally meets up in a judgement free and friendly space on a regular basis. Meetings take place fortnightly, alternating between online and in person. We never publish pictures or disclose any personal information about attendees.

We meet on Tuesdays. In-person meetings take place in the Old Primary School, 2-4pm, in Tarbert. Evening meetings are conducted using Teams or Zoom and start at 7pm.

If you would like to know more about us or receive the date of our next meetings, please contact us at
