Menopause Cafe shortlisted for funding award

Perthshire Businesswomen’s Network member Rachel Weiss has been invited to attend the Firstport Social Innovation Competition for the Menopause Café. Award winners will be announced at the Scottish Parliament during the Social Enterprise Scotland Awards on Tuesday 7 November.
Rachel set up the Menopause Café up as she realised there was a gap as people could not find anywhere to go and talk about and share experiences of the menopause.


At a Menopause Café people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss menopause.

Our objective is:
to increase awareness of the impact of the menopause on those experiencing it, their friends, colleagues and families, so that we can make conscous choices about this third stage of life.

A Menopause Cafe is a group directed discussion of menopause with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a support or counselling session. We usually split into small groups and you are welcome to just listen, although we hope you will join in on discussions. 

Our Menopause Cafés are offered:

  • On a not for profit basis
  • In an accessible, respectful and confidential space
  • With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action
  • Alongside refreshing drinks and cake!

Who is it for?

Anybody interested in sharing their stories, experiences and questions about menopause.

All genders and all ages. Men and women and inbetween. Old and young and inbetween.
