Drop-in Café Update (December 2021)
Although the government has announced stricter measures, the Star Drop-in Café at the Alfriston Day Centre will remain open on Thursday evenings with Hereward and Adele. We are asking all visitors to adhere to COVID-19 measures to ensure that everyone is safe and limit any risk of COVID-19.
Our virtual Bridge Drop-In Café is running via Zoom on Tuesday evenings from 6 – 7pm. It is an informal opportunity to chat to other attendees and staff, as well as take part in simple activities around topics such as mindfulness and creativity. No referral is required, however you must register via email to receive weekly invitation links. Please contact [email protected] for further details and to register.
The Bridge and the Star Drop-in Cafes
We are currently offering one face-to-face and one virtual Drop-in Café session each week which are both free to attend. To minimise the risk of COVID-19 we are currently not serving food or refreshments.
Our Drop-in Cafes offer a friendly, relaxed and safe environment for people with mental health issues from in and around Kingston. As well as subsidised meals, we offer low-level support and promote social inclusion. The cafés are normally open in the evenings and at weekends when other non-crisis services are closed.
No referral is required.
We run regular film nights and throughout the year, and various different workshops including arts, crafts, and drama. We also run other activities and theme nights. Please email Vicky at [email protected] for further information.
Anyone who is interested in running their own group, sharing their passion at the Drop-In, please contact the office on the above email.
Please note that if you attend the online Drop-in session, you need to keep your camera on at all time and ensure you are identifiable by name.
