The Community Support Service operates across three different sites: the Mind Hub at Despard Road, the Mind Spa at Ashley Road in the north of the borough and Mind Empower in the south.

The service provides specific support for people who use mental health services or feel lonely and isolated. This includes training, education and employment opportunities together with community leisure and social activities that enable service users to live a full and enriching life.

We have an open access policy so service users can refer themselves.
We accept referrals from community mental health teams, GP practices and other voluntary organisations. 

The drop in is for existing members only so please call beforehand if you need to query the referral process. There is no waiting list in order to register with the community support service and join most groups and activities, for some groups, support and activities you will have to book in advance and there may be a waiting list. If you only want to register for counselling at the Spa and do not want to access any other community support service service's then please contact head office on 020 3301 9850.

No individual funding is required (such as through a personal budget) to register with the community services but there are costs sometimes attached to certain services, such as lunch and counselling.
