The RSA Coffeehouse is opening its virtual doors to our global community of Fellows, friends, family and colleagues. Inspired by the origin of the RSA as an enlightenment coffeehouse 300 years ago, our Virtual Coffeehouse Conversations event series offers an interactive space for Fellows to share and discuss ideas for social change. This is an opportunity to find support and feedback from the Fellowship community, with conversation and connection at its heart.

The new ‘normal’ is yesterday's fringe lifestyle for many families.

Thrown together in the middle of a crisis the end of which we cannot yet know, families of all kinds, ages and configurations are facing new challenges.

In the face of this stress and change, join us to discuss what key factors it might be beneficial to focus on, and draw on the suggestions and experience in the virtual room.

Behavioural health change expert Anthony Eldridge-Rogers FRSA will share insights and host this conversation, covering questions such as:

What approaches are parents taking to the issue of education?

How do we ensure all members of a family receive support for their wellbeing?

How do we support our loved ones' mental health when our own is under stress as well?

Anthony Eldridge-Rogers FRSA is an expert on behavioural health change, wellness and recovery. He teaches coaching and consults internationally on coaching/peer coaching curriculum development and training. He and his partner Lehla wrote a leading book on alternative family life and learning: “Jump, Fall, Fly, from Schooling to Homeschooling to Unschooling”.

Lehla Eldridge is an author, illustrator and performer, and unschooling advocate for parents, teachers and children who are interested in self-directed autonomous learning.

The event will take place via the online conferencing platform, Zoom. You will receive the link to this meeting upon registering for the event, and again as a reminder 30 minutes beforehand. The event will be conducted in English.
