Ashford Wellbeing Cafe A chance to connect with other people and benefit from support with your mental health and wellbeing.

Ashford Wellbeing Café Update: 5th of January 2021

As we continue to balance our delivery of services amidst increased cases of Omicron in the county, we have made some changes to the Ashford Wellbeing Café to ensure a safe return.

Initially, the Café will return for one day this weekend (Friday 7th of January) from 5pm – 9pm – but it will function in a different capacity than it has done previously.

For Friday’s session, Service Users will be required to wear a face covering – and numbers attending the café will be restricted to four service users at any one time.

To ensure fair access to the Café, the service will run four one-hour slots on Friday night, with sessions available between 5pm – 6pm, 6pm – 7pm, 7pm – 8pm and 8pm – 9pm. These sessions are available on a first-come, first-served basis – but we hope that by swapping sessions over there will be plenty of capacity for our normal attendees to have the opportunity to come along during one of these slots.

You do not need to book one of these sessions, but you can call ahead on 07719 867522 to check availability.

We ask that you do not attend if you have any COVID-19 symptoms. We hope to be able to continue to gradually resume a full weekend offering in Ashford and will update you on the status of the service this weekend depending on how the service is received this Friday.

Our Ashford Wellbeing Cafe is now available in a face-to-face capacity in Ashford. Come along over Friday, Saturday and Sunday to access support from our team.

Drop in, access support and meet other people. It’s a great opportunity to connect with others.

Support from the Ashford team is available during the following hours:

Fridays: 5pm – 9pm

Saturdays: 5pm – 9pm

Sundays: 1pm – 5pm

Alongside a change in hours, the cafe service will also be available from a new location – with support available at The Beacon Centre (TN23 1BA), Bank Street, in Ashford. The venue doesn’t have parking but there is free parking available at 3pm from the new cinema complex.

You can find this location on the Google Map below:

If you have any questions about the way in which the Ashford Wellbeing Cafe will run during this period, and how you can make the most of the support which is available, then our team will be contactable during the week. You can get in touch by clicking here, or by e-mailing
