Maidstone Hope Cafe – Face-to-Face Drop In Service


Our Maidstone Cafe provides a safe space in Maidstone where people can come, meet others and benefit from the support that this welcoming environment offers.

This is a group space which encourages peer-to-peer support and crisis prevention. 

The goal with this service is to reduce isolation and also prevent people from experiencing periods of mental health crisis. This means that this service is unable to accommodate anyone who is presenting in crisis, experiencing active psychosis or self-harming. If you are experiencing any of these, please contact the Mental Health Crisis Team or head to A and E for immediate support.


The face-to-face delivery hours will be changing slightly – as is outlined below:


Fridays: 1pm – 5pm  

Sundays: 1pm – 5pm


The Cafe service will run from our hub in Maidstone (ME15 6YH). Unless otherwise stated, the service will be running – so please do check back for weekly updates on what support is available.

You’ll find a map to our location below:



Our Wellbeing Cafe has a set of rules agreed upon with our clients which helps to ensure a safe space for everyone accessing the service.

You can read these rules by clicking here.


If you have any questions about the Maidstone Hope Cafe, and how these service changes will affect the services that you can access as a part of our Cafe, then you can contact our team via mindhelp@midkentmind.org.uk.
