Maidstone Hope 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 Maidstone Hope Café to ensure that this can return safely this weekend.

The Café will operate during its normal hours of Friday and Sunday between 1pm and 5pm.

During these sessions 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.

We do not believe it will be necessary to restrict these to timeslots given the lower volume of service users who access this service, but if volume increases whilst people seek additional support then we may need to introduce new measures to account for this increased demand.

We ask that you do not attend if you have any COVID-19 symptoms. We hope to be able to continue to provide a consistent service in Maidstone and will maintain communications as and when changes occur so you are aware if any additional changes are made to these services.

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

Our Maidstone Cafe will be returning in a face to face capacity from October the 1st – providing a safe space in Maidstone where people can come, meet others and benefit from the support that this welcoming environment offers.

This service provides both Crisis Support and Wellbeing Support to anyone who would like to drop in and have a conversation with a member of our team.

The goal with this service is to provide a safe space and time where people can access peer-to-peer support whilst also benefitting from the support which our Wellbeing Workers can offer them.

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:
