The Solace Café provides a safe and non-judgemental environment for people to meet others with similar problems, and to access mental health support and advice from peers and professionals. We are not a counselling service but are here to listen and are able to offer suggestions and signposting about how to access other forms of support in the local area. The café is run by our experienced and welcoming team, Diana, Jo, Petia and Elizabeth. The service is currently operating online, via Zoom.
As well as a group space for peer support and crisis prevention between 5pm and 7pm, we offer 1-to-1s for individuals approaching crisis point and new visitors as a drop-in service. We recommend that new visitors try to arrive between 7pm and 8pm, so we can offer you the level of support you require.
