A few years ago, funding was awarded to build a recovery hub in Cambridge, a working café open to the public but with a recovery-based focus. The cafe forms a visible, public-facing demonstration of the possibility of recovery from substance misuse, generating opportunities both for people in recovery, and for the wider community.

Situated on the site of Brookfields Hospital, on our walls you'll find a different artist in residence each month, and throughout the week we provide a wide programme of workshops and music, spoken word and interactive events that are open to all.


The Edge Café also offers a meeting room for commercial, community and charity hire at reasoniable rates. The Hayman Room offers facilities that include broadband access, AV equipment and SMART board. A catering service is available for people using the meeting room.


“Recovery is like any other puzzle - you start at the edge.”

If you're got a great idea that you think might be good for the cafe, would like to host a workshop or anything else, we'd love to hear from you. Click the button below to get involved!
