We are delighted to announced that our Futures In Mind service has opened another vital support café.
Staff and volunteers from Futures In Mind are opening the new Maldon group at the popular Suzie’s Gift and Tea Shop, which already hosts weekly coffee meet-ups for those who are experiencing loneliness.
The service supports those across Essex with mental health issues and/or drug and alcohol misuse.
Kerry Page, Futures in Mind’s Service Coordinator, said: “The new Welcome Café will be vital for the community and will allow people to build a routine and a sense of purpose whilst learning social skills and building an encouraging and caring network.”
Welcome Cafés offer a safe and comforting place for people to share experiences and offer support to one another.
The service is a partnership between Phoenix Futures, Mind in West Essex and Mid and North East Essex Mind and is the first to combine both mental ill health and alcohol/drug misuse.
The Welcome Café will be open every Wednesday from 10am until noon.
Suzie’s Gift and Tea shop offers creative workshops and is a growing part of the community.
If you are interested in coming along to our new Welcome Cafe, or any of the others in the local area, please give one of our coordinators a call on 01206 764600 and we’ll be happy to help.
